You are God's Masterpiece!

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.

You are a masterpiece! One definition of "masterpiece" is: "The most outstanding work of a creative artist or craftsman."

What is God's greatest creation? Is it the atom, the flowers, the oceans, planet Earth, the sun, or the galaxies? None of these amazing items were made in His image and likeness.

You are God's greatest creative work, because He chose to craft people in a manner that would allow us to identify with God and have relationship with Him.

The text states, "He has created us anew in Christ Jesus..." While every person is a masterpiece creation of God, those who have not received Jesus as Savior and Lord are "locked" out of their full potential because of an unregenerate spirit. They look like a masterpiece painting hidden in a basement, discolored and barely recognizable.

Those who have received Jesus as Lord and Savior can fully realize the benefits of redemption and new life. You look like a masterpiece painting only hours after its completion with all its vibrant color and on full display.

The best part is this: You are "unlocked" and now qualify to do all the "good things" that God destined for you before time began.

Live like God's masterpiece, do good work, and give Him all the glory!
