I am… God’s MASTERPIECE!
“ 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
Other versions/translations say, “handiwork or workmanship.” The word masterpiece however evokes, for me, a much stronger sense of value and pride that a creator/artist would have in his creation.
The point is that God molded us for his glory and to accomplish His purposes.
He takes delight in us as we live in Christ Jesus. He smiles when he looks at us, not because we are so awesome, but because he sees his son when He looks at us.
How amazing is it to be the masterful creation of a perfect God?
