“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 NLT
Do you believe you are a masterpiece? God says you are. He didn’t say, “you are My masterpiece if you do everything right.” You are His masterpiece because He created you.
Michelangelo created numerous masterpieces. Imagine one of them coming to life and taking credit for being a masterpiece. What did the masterpiece do to become a treasure? Nothing. The creator is what made it invaluable.
Consider if Michelangelo’s creations declared they did not feel like masterpieces. Would that make them mediocre?
You are God’s masterpiece. The only question for you to answer is; are you going to live today in light of being God’s masterpiece? It’s one thing to say you believe something, it’s quite another to live life based on that belief.
What has the Sovereign God woven into you? He promises He gave you gifts and talents that make you uniquely able to meet the needs of others and fulfill His plan for you on earth. Put those unique gifts and talents into action today. Look for opportunities to be His light, extend His love and give hope to the hopeless.
You are God’s masterpiece. Let the world see what He can do!
Your view of God really matters…
Your view of yourself is a reflection of your view of God. If you’re struggling with pride or with a low self-image the solution is the same; fix your eyes on your Creator and ask Him to help you see yourself as He does - His beautiful masterpiece.
Read God’s Word Today…
Psalm 139:13-14 “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank You for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.”
GOD, because You are Sovereign help me to live like the masterpiece You created me to be.
