How do you see that the Gospel is or could be transforming your sphere, industry or workplace?
We are made in the image of the Creator. It’s just beautiful that we are given the gift to create, to entertain, and to make others feel how we feel.
On the one hand I see people using their gifts to create to magnify and exalt God.
On the other, I do not see enough people willing to step into this sphere to reach out to those who are here already.
There is incredible potential for the Gospel to reach those who create, to not only show them that art and entertainment was created as a way to pray, but also as a way to display the image of the One who created us all in the first place.
A song, a TV show, a picture, a movie. These may not sometimes seem so “”significant””. But in our generation, I see these as one of the most powerful tools of healing. Nothing can reach a person who is alone yet deeply hurting, as how a song, a TV show, a picture, a movie can. Few things can shape a whole culture & generation – a person throughout their life – as can a song, a TV show, a picture, a movie can.
How do you think you or others in your field can shine the light of Christ in your sphere?
By being engaged with those in our workplaces and collaborative spaces, and not being afraid to engage – even if they may seem so different.
Keep creating and/or encouraging others to create!
