“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 feel like God wants nothing to do with you? That we are so small compared to an all powerful God, why would he care anything about somebody like me? Who am I?
Well you are Gods masterpiece. What kind of art collector buys a masterful piece of artwork and throws it in the basement? No they proudly display their masterpiece. They make sure it has a prominent spot in their home so all can see it. A sculptor makes a monument for a city, it doesn’t get put in a dark alley hidden away, no the masterpiece goes in a prominent location, why because it is important. You are Gods masterpiece. You are important to him.
When we finally accept that we are a child of God through the sacrifice Jesus made we come to realize that God has always loved us. Don’t be fooled to believe that God only starts loving us when we accept Jesus. God created humanity on day six and said we were very good. He had a relationship with us in the garden, and even after continued to work to have a relationship with us even when we didn’t deserve it. Like a good friend he got angry when we wouldn’t listen but he never gave up on us. He loves us so much that he died for us, yes God died for us. When Jesus died on the cross, the Father and Spirit who are connected to him died with him, yet lived. This is the awesome power of the trinity of God.
So today I wonder what good things is God doing in your life? Are you asking him for good things? Ask Jesus to renew your life, and ask him for opportunités to do good things for him. Be active in sharing your faith and letting others know about the love Jesus has for them. It is time for us to change our world.
Jesus, thank you for reminding me daily that I am your masterpiece. Help me to show others that they too are a masterpiece of God, that they may have a ratty poster covering it but underneath is something amazing. Holy Spirit reveal in me wisdom to help my friends, family, coworkers and strangers see you for who you are and experience a relationship with the Father. They matter to you Jesus, so they matter to me. Let me see good things happening, Amen
