Create Meaningful Art and Make a Difference That Matters
Your work, be it creative or servile, is most significant when you are working out of your significance, and in harmony with the intersection of your higher passions, your creative purpose (vocation), and the culture’s need.
You discover your higher passion by delighting in God, your creative purpose by exercising the gifts of God, and the culture’s need by understanding God’s creation rightly ordered.
In other words, you make a difference that actually matters when you work out God’s workmanship in you.
“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4, ESV)
“For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.” (Romans 8:22, ESV)
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10, ESV)
“for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13, ESV)
