There was a time I really wanted to play in the WNBA.
Can you imagine that?
I can’t anymore because let’s face it: my athletic abilities are not that great. Playing intramural sports is fun, but I’m by no means a MVP.
But when I was 10, I saw myself playing ball with the big shots. I saw myself on the court, dominating the competition!
Tonight at a Bible study, the pastor said something that caught my attention:
The imagination is our spiritual womb; it’s out of our imagination that dreams and desires are birthed.
The pastor’s statement gripped me because my personal belief is that Christians should be the most creative people on this planet.
The Creator of the Universe lives inside of us!
Jesus doesn’t require you to cash in your personality in order to follow Him. I’m not quite sure when being a Christian became synonymous with being boring and unoriginal.
It’s simply not true!
Let me be clear: I am not advocating becoming an all-about-me Christian. This should be a given anyway since Jesus Himself taught us to live selflessly instead of selfishly.
The fact remains, though, that when you accept Jesus, you are more alive than you ever were before!
Who you are–personality and all–explodes to life when God moves into your heart.
Deity lives inside you! You are one with Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
The more I understand this truth, the more excited I am to dream big with God.
And your dreams and my dreams are not selfish in their motives when the purpose is to see God become real to others.
It’s time to dream big again…
