Responding to Our Creator’s Creativity

By Bryan Belknap – BSF Creative Director

When we think of Old Testament heroes of the faith, the usual names come to mind:  

Moses. 

Abraham. 

Ruth. 

David. 

But none of these well-known pillars of faith was the first recorded person in the Bible to receive the Spirit of God. That honor belongs to … (drumroll) …  

Bezalel. 

That’s right. Bezalel — the one so crafty with wood, jewels, and gold — was filled with God’s Spirit in Exodus 31:3 to serve as chief designer and interior decorator of the Tabernacle.  

Wait, what? He received God’s Spirit to do arts and crafts and not write Scripture or lead an army into the Promised Land?! 

Exactly.  

While we might be tempted to think God has more important things to consider than color patterns and furniture arrangements, Scripture reveals He does, indeed, care deeply about artistry and aesthetics. 

Creation

We recently studied God’s orderly creation of the universe in Genesis. Not only did God take great care to put everything in its proper place, He also made our incredible world beautiful. He placed a soothing blue sky over green forests and fields. He did not make vast fiery red or orange oceans, knowing those colors tend to make human beings anxious and angry. It’s doubtful a human would have thought “a vast ocean of gritty sand would be lovely,” but anyone who has watched sunlight and shadows dance across endless waves of desert sand knows our Creator is incredibly creative indeed. 

Romans 1:20 says, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” God uses the beauty of creation to draw people to Himself, just like the Tabernacle was artfully designed by God’s Spirit working in Bezalel to point the Israelites to Him. 

Made in the image of God

Genesis 1:27 states: 

So God created mankind in his own image, 
    in the image of God he created them; 
    male and female he created them. 

While this glorious, mysterious, incredible truth definitely speaks to our intrinsic value and special place amongst all of creation, it also has practical implications. As image bearers, we share certain qualities with our creator God.  

Human beings are unique in nature in that we can imagine something and then turn that thought into reality. Although we can’t speak something into existence out of nothing like God, He does still call us to use our God-given creativity to reflect His beauty on earth.

Reflections of Christ

As we prepare for our study of Matthew, we see the creativity of the Father embodied in His Son. Paul tells us in Colossians 1:15-16 “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” 

And we are told in 1 Corinthians 11:1 “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.” 

So how can we, as believers, follow Christ’s example in creativity? 

You might be tempted to stop right here with protests of not being creative. “I don’t paint or act or sing!” But consider the creativity our Savior displayed during His ministry on earth; you might recognize some of these in your own life. 

In labor 

While we don’t have any examples of Jesus’ handiwork, Mark 6:3 states Jesus was known in his hometown by his trade, carpentry. (Can you imagine how expensive one of His tables would be at an auction today?!?) This meant He could look at a piece of wood, picture what He wanted the hunk of pine to become, then turn His imagination into a reality. Physical labor, whether its gardening or construction, can be an act of worship and creativity. 

In words

Jesus took deep, unseen spiritual realities and placed them within concrete stories His audience could grasp. Whether it’s the boundless love of God as presented in The Prodigal Son or a vivid picture of our hard-heartedness in the face of God’s lavish forgiveness in The Unforgiving Servant, Jesus created practical methods for presenting the spiritual. No, Jesus doesn’t expect all of His children to be writers, but He does call us to share our personal stories of being transformed by Him. And His gift for storytelling challenges us to try to put the unseen spiritual matters of faith into words a seeker might understand when we have the opportunity. 

In works 

Jesus’ miracles showcase His tremendous creativity. He healed blindness with a word (Luke 18:35), a touch (Matthew 9:29), and mud made from spit (John 9:6-7). The physical actions of His miracles also made spiritual points. So, while you might not be turning water into wine, you mimic the work of our Lord when you minister to the weak, outcast, or suffering. When you point them to the spiritual reality of a loving God who sees and loves them, you are reflecting Christ’s wonderful creativity in His ministry.  

So how will you respond in labor, words, or works? How might God be calling you to creatively use your unique gifts for His glory? 

BSF Art Galleries

One way we at BSF Headquarters have responded is by creating BSF Galleries that connect to our studies. We are not looking to create photorealistic pictures of Scripture (because no one knows exactly what biblical events looked like). Rather, we wanted artistic expressions inspired by God’s Word. That is why we asked professional artists in the BSF family from around the world to read, meditate upon and pray over their chosen passage.  

Then they worked. They created. They produced what you ultimately see displayed in the gallery. 

Like in the previous Genesis study, the works in the new Matthew gallery are meant to be expressions of worship that inspire worship in others. The artwork is not meant to be viewed literally or to take the place of reading Scripture. They are one person’s perspective – potentially from a radically different cultural context than your own – sharing how God spoke to them through His Word. 

Most of you share in your discussion group how God speaks to you by using words. These artists are doing the same thing through a visual medium. 

Our hope is the art galleries will first and foremost glorify God. Our prayer is they will drive you to worship and to see Scripture in a fresh way that breathes new life and meaning into stories you might have read a hundred times. 

The gallery also serves as a colorful example of how we are knit together into a beautiful tapestry with our brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world who see things from various cultural perspectives. Ultimately, that’s a wonderful, beautiful thing that can only be created by the Spirit of Almighty God. 

Matthew 28

  1. Bryan, How does one submit art to the BSF Gallery? Can’t find anything on the blog gallery, can’t contact through Facebook and the Contact page on the site leads you back to Facebook. Maybe I am missing some what to submit. Would be awesome to encourage more submissions.

    Here is my “Micah Prophesying to the Kingdoms” https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10167599107240092&set=a.10152346804970092

    Your comments given above were so rich and full of meaning for me today.
    I can fully understand how our Master every one His followers to be a creative artist like Himself, when He worked as an expert carpenter in Nazareth and later He explained God’s words in such a beautiful style for everyone to understand.

  9. Wow! That was beautiful! Thanks for sharing! I grew up close to nature and it was what first drew me to search for God. I was about 10-12 yrs. old when we moved from “the bush” to a town. I noticed that the flowers I was observing had symmetry, had design, had color, and I knew they HAD to be created! If they were designed, it took a mind to create them, and if there was a mind, the Creator had to be a person, and if the designer was a person, they could be known…..and if a Person….. what a beautiful Person they would be…..worth knowing! And so I longed to know God, the beautiful Creator! So I searched and found Him, and He is even more than I could have ever dreamed!!!

  11. Hello Bryan,
    I love your title of your blog! I appreciate your blog and was encouraged to read about Bezalel and the creativity the Lord blessed him with! I too enjoy a creative edge in a few different ways and want to keep a balance. It’s too easy to potentially spend hours on one particular project! I am always thanking and praising God for the incredibly beautiful world HE has given us to live in!! And to think Heaven will be that much greater?? WOW! And the creativity and beauty in His animals! WOW! What a gift! The Lord is so good to us!
    Once again, thank you for your creative idea in developing this blog, and I look forward to logging in again! By the way, I sent some of your text on to a friend and she loved it! God Bless you!

  12. This is deep and inspiring ! I’m eternally grateful to God for allowing a frigid introducing me to BSF . It’s one of the things that happened to me since I came to Palm Bay . I’ve been learning so much … I’ve had other Bible Studies but BSF is the best . I’ve introduced a friend to BSF for the Genesis Study , she is ecstatic to say the least. Thank you for all that you’ve done and continue to do. It is my desire for this ministry to grow and for God to get all the glory. Yours at the Feet of Jesus .

  13. Thanks, Brian, for sharing your thoughts on creative worship. Not being a creative person myself, I hadn’t really thought about how God can express His creativity through me, but that is just my limiting what He might want to do. I really appreciated this look at a sometimes forgotten but vital way to worship the Lord. (And it was really neat to see that our own Ami Ross has her work featured in the gallery.)

  17. Sometimes I close my eyes and try to imagine a scene in the Bible and have found some of the scenes God creates in my mind quiet hilarious and wondered whether that is idolatry but am glad to know it is not. I never try to see or imagine how God looks but as for scenes, in the Bible I do and find Our God and Creator most loving, caring, humorous…. the list is endless God., only evil is not a part of Him. Am looking forward to studying the book of Mathew.

  18. I am an artist at an young age of 71. Long ago I have stumbled on a methodology while in the University of Washington and to this day
    I have been researching and developing the technique. My question is how do I present the work onto your site? I am not very well verse in modern technology and need help in doing what is needed to be done. Your writeup is right on in God’s perspective on the fine artist
    and I fully agree. I need to present these works can you help me? I want to do the will of God to show others His works through me.

    Autumn will prove to be a mind-blowing reality that God created for us to enjoy and to be reminded of his faithfulness.
    When God is the artist I am moved by his attention to detail.

  27. Thanks for including creativity into BSF which makes it more than just a Bible study when we understand the creativity of God.

  28. It seems that in the same vein that God has made every human being unique in their appearance, he has also made them unique in their artistic skills. I think this is also affirmed in that he has given believers a variety of spiritual gifts to manifest the power of God. However, in the pulpit and pew version of “worship”, 99% of the artistry abilities and spiritual gifts are restrained from being manifest. Tradition has taught us God will funnel his truth and wisdom through one hired man with a Bible degree in one way communication. The scripture that is used to demand this falsely restricted practice is all twisted, when examined beyond what a clergyman will invest. This tradition has been ruling God’s people for over 500 years. It was not reformed at the Reformation. BSF is one ministry that removes these false restrictions and free’s God’s people to each prepare and teach and admonish one another as the Bible instructs. Col. 3:16. We must learn the scriptures that expose these false restrictions to the variety and artistic expanse of God’s design.

I do the earthly work of tending the garden, but God packs each seed with potential and brings forth the flowers from the soil. My garden is named Glory Be Garden to remind me and visitors that the glory of creation is His. I name the flowers from bible verses and hymns hoping to inspire and further lead others to Him.

  44. I have always struggled with God’s gifts to me as a violinist, a singer, an actress, an academic and a writer. They have always seemed so useless in a world with so much need, so much brokenness. They seem like an utter waste of
    time and energy. There are the accountants, the doctors, the nurses, the missionaries, teachers, all so much more grounded, centered and useful than someone who can play a violin concerto or sing musical theatre or write a story. No one really wants a sensitive creative type. Belazel deserves another round of reading and study. Thank you for the blessing of a new perspective and another way of thinking of these creative gifts.

My prayers will be that God will help me speak His truth and heart through painting, and use them to touch people’s hearts.

  61. God’s Magnificently Amazing creation helped to keep me spiritually grounded while on “lockdown” last year. Since I wasn’t able to go to the gym last summer, I began walking laps around my backyard for exercise. We’d lived in our home for 35yrs. and I never knew how many different varieties of greenery: tress, shrubs and vines, some that later bloomed and berried, awaited my discovery–God’s Magnificently Amazing creation! As summer turned to fall, the beautiful transition to hues of gold, bronze and orange leaves and yes, even the straw-colored grass made me smile. And during the winter the bare trees even had a haunting beauty that I never knew existed. I often shed tears as I walked and thanked God for showing me Himself in His Magnificently Amazing creation during a very difficult time that breathed life into my almost lifelessness. And the funny thing is that He was there all the time……

  77. Hello:

    First, I loveBSF!I started with BSF in early 90’s. Truly, it is God-sent. I do ave a comment regarding the 1st picture in the Matthew pictorial gallery. As a person of color, I was struck by the Our Lord and Savior. As the secular world comes to the knowledge of needing to be sensitive to the fact that we are not all same and should not be portrayed as such, so must the Christian world. That representation of King Jesus represents only a Euro-Centric perspective. I am certain there is no mal-intent involved but we all must continue to grow and appreciate, respspect and portray the diversity of God’s wonderful creation and, certainly, be sensitive to how we portray our Lord and Savior.

    Reply
    • Hi Leonora

      We started Bsf at about the same time. The art depicting King Jesus is pretty close to being Jewish which was His ethnicity on earth if we are talking about the same one. You’re correct that He shouldn’t look European or African or Asian. That doesn’t represent the truth. I’m not the artist by the way. Hope your year is full of blessing.

  79. The artwork helps me to know how God’s word forms pictures in our minds; the paintings are impacting and inspiring. The human brain is, by God’s design, miraculous, and by our senses, also designed by Him, each one of us with our own unique abilities, take in an experience the Word in truly, an infinite number of images and emotions.
