10 Primal Days — God Idea

10 01 2010

Mark Batterson looks at God Ideas in chapter 7 of the new book Primal.  He looks at idea stewardship as the responsibility of believers.  It’s part of loving God with all your mind, and being in touch with a Creator who births creativity in us.  Batterson claims he would rather have one “God idea than a thousand good ideas.”  Just one God idea can create a revolution, but it starts with a love for God.

God ideas aren’t the by-product of genius, they are the by-product of love.  The more you love God, the more God reveals.  If you love Him enough, not for what He can do but for who He is, then God will give up His secrets.  Why? Because that is the essence of love.  The more you love the more you  reveal.  And there are so many secrets waiting to be revealed.

The great commandment is all about love.  Loving Him with all your mind means taking every thought captive for Him.  It means loving Him daily in real ways.

What God ideas has He birthed in you?  What are you doing with them?
