God’s creating goes on forever

The expert potter continues to make us new through His divine inspiration. 

One of the most important things we can learn about ourselves—perhaps the most important thing—is the answer to the question, “What is my relationship to God?” The Holy Bible provides us with hundreds of answers. This verse from a psalm provides us with seven: “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower” (Psalms 18:2).

Central to this relationship is the fact that God is our creator, our only creator—in fact, the only creator. But God does not create something and then send it out on its own. God’s creative activity never ends. Our relationship to Him—God the creator, we the creature or creation—is ongoing.

This does not mean that we develop from imperfection to perfection or incompleteness to completeness. On the contrary, perfection is the starting point of God’s creating. In the first chapter of the Bible, God, beholding His creation, pronounces it “very good” (Genesis 1:31). But this perfection is not static. Quite the opposite: It is wonderfully dynamic. It could be compared to the light show we see on certain computer screen savers, which display a beautiful, abstract, ever-
evolving design of shifting light, color, and shape.
