The Gap Between Belief and Disbelief

[blockquote cite="ROMANS 1:20 (NLT)" type="center"]For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.[/blockquote]This past Sunday at Renovation Church was about the great creativity that Jesus used to reach people and convey messages in simple life-changing ways. Jesus used stories. So to tie into this concept we saw an opportunity to craft an experience that might help convey a very real struggle of belief and disbelief. So what did we do? We shot a video that told a story.

Using Romans 1:20 for the backbone, we found a culturally relevant song that the band played with the video which matched the story we were trying to tell. To summarize: the video is about a young man struggling to believe even though the world around him reveals God’s undeniable power and divine nature. Woah… kind of deep right?

[blockquote type="center"]Watch the video here.[/blockquote] Even if this concept wasn’t quite revealed to it’s fullest for you, that’s okay. When it comes to using creative elements our intention isn’t to be heavy handed or to force feed an idea but to invoke wonder to promote discovery of who God is.

[blockquote type="center"]We view creativity as a yet another tool for reaching our community.[/blockquote]

We are loved by the author of all creation, the ultimate creator. So followers of Jesus should be the most creative, innovative and thoughtful people on the planet. We're going to do whatever it takes, discover new methods, and speak in creative, thought-provoking ways to reach every man, woman, and child. Why? Because it's what Jesus has called us to do.

[blockquote type="center"]You shouldn't feel like you have to believe to feel like you belong.[/blockquote] To those of you whom may not yet believe or desperately struggle to believe: Our prayer is that one day you may see God’s plan of restoration. (2 Peter 3:9) His desire is to see every man, woman, and child come to the knowledge of the truth. So press on, keep digging, keep searching - it's worth it.
