God’s masterpiece

February 24th, 2008

The Bible says in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago”. As I look at this verse I found that it speaks to me about three things.

1. We were made by God – Not only are we made by God, but it goes further by saying we are His masterpiece. To be honest I have never thought of myself as anything special. But this verse tells me that I am. It tells me that we are. We are more special and more valuable to God than the greatest painting in the greatest gallery on earth.

2. We have been made new – This verse also tells me that we been made new in Christ Jesus. That means no matter what we have done or how the world has tried to damage us or put us down, we have been renewed when we come to Christ. We are returned to the Makers specifications.

3. God has a plan for us – Some people think we are here by chance with no real purpose to life. This verse verse tells us that the Creator of the universe has work for us that He planed long ago. Long before you and I were born, God has us on His mind. He knew when we would be born and He knew what we had to do, so He made us a certain way. Are you involved in God’s plan?

I don’t know about you, but this verse and the three points in it, make me feel pretty special!
