Colossians 1:27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. NKJV
Endless creativity in Christ. Endless expressions of form and substance but yet all founded and centered on Jesus Christ and Him alone.
Colossians 1:16-18 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. NKJV
These are beautiful verses of truth in Christ. Jesus Christ is our example. As we allow the Holy Spirit to reveal Him to and through our lives, we will enter a realm of limitless design and form here on earth. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.
Why then is the Body so mundane and conformed to the world in our expression? Why do we always try so hard? Why are so many seeking to emulate another ministry, another leader, and another movement? It is easier to follow a prescribed template of someone else’s revelation than to seek something unique and expressive for us. Fear keeps many from moving out – fear of losing finances, fear of losing denominational endorsement, fear of losing people, and fear of losing respectability just to name a few.
Using a template that another iconic ministry has formed and developed may be easier but it will also consistently kill creativity in you. Ease of use is death to the creative process. Creativity takes time to BE in His presence to SEE His glory and to FLOW in His way. We rise into a growing revelation of our being seated in heavenly places. We flow forth in expression and Holy Spirit led form and function. More to come.
