Eph. 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.
We are God’s masterpiece. Several things come to my mind when I think about this wonderful truth. We are the best of God’s creation. We are not an accident of His handiwork, but much thought and energy has gone into making us. We are created to be put on display; God wants all to see what He has done. Great care has gone into making us just right. We are created to bring God honor and glory. We are His and not anyone else’s. We are wonderfully made.
Accept who you are. God knows why He made you the way you are. You, or others, may not understand the whys, but it’s not necessary for us to know. It is enough to know that God knows. He lovingly made you and if you can accept that and allow Him to have control of you, you will know great peace and happiness with you. God has a plan for using you in your uniqueness and it is good what He desires to do in and through you.
We are created anew in Christ. We are not like what we once were. We have a fresh start in life, no longer bound by the things which once bound us. We have a new identity so that we can fulfill His purposes for our lives.
We are created in Christ with a purpose, to fulfill God’s predetermined plans for our lives. What God has planned for us to do is good. We are not created to do nothing, but to be busy serving Him. No one who sits idly and does nothing for the Lord is living in obedience to Him. It is good to be actively serving the Lord.
