The second reason that i should be creative is because Jesus modeled it. Christ modeled it. The Bible says in Matthew 13: thirty four, “… he did not say anything for them without using a parable. ” Jesus spoke from hillside, sail boat bows and beaches. He drew inside sand. He turned over tables. He divided species of fish. He used word photos and he used visuals. He said, “See the sower there scattering seed starting… see this child… see the key and the lock… see the ground… start to see the water… see the bread. ” Everything was video or graphic, everything was creative. “See that coin… ” Everything has been contemporary. “Did you hear regarding the building that fell over and killed some people… ” A current occurrence.
