Flex Your Creative Muscle to Discover More About Yourself and God

Someone somewhere has evidence of your creativity.

Tucked in an attic somewhere. Stashed in a photo album. Sitting on a bookshelf. Parked in a garage.

Before responsibilities and commitments commandeered your life, creativity came easily. You colored and glued and built and painted and designed. You imagined and pretended and dreamed.

Even if you don’t recognize that part of your life, the God of the universe created you in His own image. He is the designer, the craftsman, and the sovereign power that maintains, directs, and sustains the universe.

He has created you to tell the story of Jesus in a way that no one else can. No one else has been all the same places, done all the same things, learned all the same lessons, faced all the same struggles, or met all the same people.

God calls you to be the light of the world. You have been given life to bring light to a broken, hurting world. To share the light of Jesus with those who are connected to you. Just as Jesus’ death on the cross glorified the Father, your life on earth should do the same.

Spiritually, mentally, and physically, you have the gift of creativity. You are a craftsman born in the image of God. Your creative work has the potential to show the light of Jesus to the world.

The men of Junto Tribe are learning to view our work as craftsmanship instead of viewing it as a grind. We are seeking to create something beautiful and true for the benefit of our families, our communities, and ourselves. We want you to join us on the journey.

Create things that others can use; things they find joy in; things that benefit them.

As you build your creative muscle, you’ll learn more about yourself and your Creator. You’ll discover the man God created you to be and you’ll bless those whose lives connect with yours.

Start small to rediscover your creativity. Color a picture with your kids. Take on the role of the villain in their stories of make-believe. Dance or paint or sing or build. Find creative ways to invest in your family and share Jesus with them.

They’re the most accepting audience you’ll ever find. What do you have to lose?
