Did you ever think that God is going to take account and require you to give account of how you manifested your creativity? No one ever told me this.

Are you aware that you will be asked how you deployed the gifts, talents, ideas, abilities, and potential that has been deposited on the inside of you when you meet your maker?

Are you aware that on the last day, God is going to ask you about how you manifested your creativity when you were alive?

Now, I know this may sound shocking or come off as scary. But in this blog, I’m going to show you exactly why creativity is important in your life and in your afterlife.

So read this blog to the end, or bookmark this post if you have to give attention to something else.

Why Creativity is Important in Life


Why is Creativity Important In Life

It’s fascinating and amazing how many people go to their graves every day, with their ideas, talents, gifts, and skills untapped, unharnessed, and unmanifested. Many Christians, many believers go to their graves without ever scratching the surface of their creativity.

Before we delve further, let’s establish that creativity is a phenomenon that came from God. God is so concerned about creativity that the first chance He got to introduce Himself to the world, He introduced Himself as the Creativity God.

That’s why in the very first verse of the very first book in the Bible, God introduced Himself as a creativity God. The Bible says, “In the beginning, God displayed His creativity…” (emphasis added).

Now, when you meet someone you care about and you first introduce yourself to that person, you most likely will introduce yourself to the person using the quality that you believe will be more attractive to that person.

So when God first introduced Himself to mankind, the very first quality that He introduced Himself with was creativity. When God created man in the book of Genesis 1:28, He blessed him and said, “Be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, have dominion…” God was imparting creativity into man with His words.

Every manufacturer creates a product with an intention in mind. When that product is created, the manufacturer will test the product to be sure that it performs the way it was intended to.

So after God blessed man, He gave man work to do, told him to “dress and keep” the garden. In other words, God was telling man to engage his problem-solving skills, which He had built into him when He formed him.

God did not stop there; He brought the animals before man and asked Adam to name the animals. Adam had never taken any course, had not gotten any certifications on “animal naming”, but God brought the animals before him and asked him to name those animals.

This is crucial to understanding why creativity is important in your life and in your death. The purpose of creativity is to help everyone go from idea, talent, skill, and potential to tangible creation or profitable solutions.

What would it be like if God asked you, “What did you do with your gifts, skills, talents, or ideas?”

Don’t be surprised if, on the last day, God asks you questions like, “What did you do with that book I inspired you to write?” or “What did you do with the business I moved you to start, for which I provided you with resources to begin?”

God will inquire about how you deployed and manifested your creativity. I’m going to show you through scriptures why this is so. Do not take my word for it, do your own study and research along these lines after you read this article or listen to the video above.

Four Reasons Why Creativity is Important in Life and in the Afterlife

1. Your Purpose is Directly Connected to Your Creativity

Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which He has ordained beforehand that we should walk in them.” The word “workmanship” means a product or fabrication.

God created you with a purpose in mind. Just as a manufacturer creates a product with an intention, God created you and fabricated you with an intention. He wanted you to perform good works, to make good use of opportunities, and to manifest your creativity.

2. Your Visibility is Directly Connected to Your Creativity

Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they will see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.” When you manifest your creativity, you become visible, and your visibility becomes irresistible.

People are drawn to excellence, and your creativity is a way to bring glory to God by attracting people to Him through your manifested gifts, talents, and skills.

3. Your Accountability is Directly Connected to Your Creativity

In Matthew 25:14, Jesus gave a parable about talents. God has given you gifts, skills, ideas, and talents according to your abilities. He wants you to use them wisely.

When He returns, you’ll be asked to give an account of how you used these talents. Your accountability is tied to the work you do when you are alive, and you’ll be questioned about the quality and excellence of your creative work.

4. Your Rewardability is Directly Connected to Your Creativity

1 Corinthians 3:10-14 explains that your work will be tried and tested. The quality and excellence of your creative work will determine your reward. Your rewardability in death is tied to the efficacy and quality of your work while alive.

Don’t go to the grave with your gifts, skills, talents, and ideas untapped and unmanifested. Manifest your creativity while you have the chance.

In closing, ask yourself two questions:
1. What gift, skill, idea, talent, or plan do you have that you’re yet to produce or manifest?
2. What are you going to do to birth that brainchild?
