When I think about worshiping God, I first think of singing songs to him and about him. Yes, that’s a part of worship, but there’s more.
Next, I think about worshiping God by giving money to him and his causes. That’s another aspect of worship, but there’s more.
Third, I think about worshiping God by performing acts of service. There’s a myriad of ways for this to happen and each can be another facet of worship, but there’s more.
Fourth, I think about worshiping God by creating art. Sometimes art is about him and sometimes it’s for him, creating for the creator. After all, he is the ultimate creator and we are made in his image; therefore, we are made to create.
The problem is I’ve never considered myself a creative person. I’m an analytical guy, logic and structure is how I’m wired, not to create.
God began to change this perspective in me when I attended the Breathe Christian Writers Conference last year. Through the people there, he showed me writing is another way to create art.
Not only is writing a spiritual act for me, but now it’s becoming a creative act, too; one I use to worship God.
