“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” – Ephesians 2:10
We are His masterpiece. His workmanship. His poem. We. Us. You and me. How does that make you feel?
At first, it seems like nothing new to me. I know that I am His creation – He knit me together etc etc. But His masterpiece? Think about an artist and his masterpiece – he devotes his best effort, he challenges his skills, he is so proud, he displays it, he takes care of it. It is worth more than gold to him, it is a representation of him. But WE are not just a piece of art, created once and then displayed. We are a growing, learning, evolving masterpiece! And the more we allow Him, the more He can paint onto our soul canvas. More and more to shine in His image and to be the child He intended us to be – doing good works for Him.
Thinking on this, I feel so honoured, so unique, so dear to Him. But honestly, I also feel some pressure 😉 We owe it to Him to display His best work – to show kindness when it is undeserved, to show compassion, humility, self-control when the world doesn’t understand it. To be bold and courageous in our faith. We owe it to Him to represent His workmanship to the best we can – to show the world that His masterpiece will SHINE.
