We Are His Masterpiece
“We Are His Masterpiece”
By Zach Wood
“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.”
Isn’t it an amazing thought to know that God created each of us individually and not all the same? How crazy would it be if we were all alike and knew the same things and behaved all the same? Can you imagine that? That would definitely change the world up a bit, don’t you think? Fortunately, God did not make us all the same, but very different and unique and we should be thankful He has done so.
One thing that I’m always amazed by is how God describes creating us. We are His workmanship, His masterpiece. The NIV describes us as His workmanship, while the NLT says masterpiece. While both descriptions are wonderful, I tend to lean more toward masterpiece as being my favored description. How wonderful and beautiful that we are God’s created masterpiece. I immediately think of sculptures and different artists taking time to make something very detailed and elaborate.
The enemy sure has his ways of getting each of us to feel like we are worthless and no good to God at all. While we know what God says to us in His Word about being unique, the enemy is very sly at getting us to believe many times that we are not worth anything to God. He gets us to believe the lie that we have messed up too many times and that God will not love us anymore. That is so far from the truth it is crazy!
You and I are an absolutely beautiful masterpiece created by the very hands of Almighty God. What is even more beautiful is when we come to Christ and we are made new through Him in a new birth. We are His masterpiece, each of us. Now, how does that make you feel?? If you are reading this and you’ve been taunted so many years by the lie that God does not love you anymore and that you are worthless, you are completely wrong. He loves you and nothing will ever change that.
You and I are His beautiful masterpiece!
