Ephesians 2:10 NLT, “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.”
Did you know that you are a masterpiece?
A masterpiece is the greatest work of an artist, author, architect, composer, or other practitioner. Perhaps, you've heard about the The Last Supper painting by Leonardo Da Vinci, or the book Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, seen acting work by the late, great Sidney Poitier. There are masterpiece buildings like the Sidney Opera House in Australia.
You are God's masterpiece! People are God's greatest work. We are Imago Dei, which is a latin term meaning "The Image of God", which is what he said when he made the first person, Adam. That is something not said about any other created thing or animal. Not even Angels are made in the image of God
A lot of forces in this world and sometimes your mind fight against the Imago Dei inside you. We live in a negative world, but you have a positive image inside you. And it is never too late to accept God's version of reality and His design for your life.
An oppressed man named Gideon was found threshing wheat in a wine press because he was hiding from his enemies. A wine press is for pressing grapes. In that place, God found Gideon hiding in that place and said, “I am with you, you mighty man of valor.” (Judges 6:12) God doesn't only see your circumstances, He sees you.
Is there anything out of place in your life because of negative circumstances? The answer and solution begins with believing what God said about you. You are HIs best work.
You are a masterpiece. And God is with you!
God Bless and Be Encouraged!
