God's Masterpiece

Whenever you feel unqualified, insecure, defeated, or just plain overwhelmed. Remember what Jesus says about His children - you are His masterpiece!

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. - Ephesians 2:10

"The word translated "workmanship" is really the word poem. We are his poem. Or, if you like, perhaps it would be better rendered "we are his masterpiece." God is working out in our lives a tremendous exhibition and demonstration of His wisdom, His power, His love, His life, His character, His peace, and His joy. He is teaching us, training us, bringing us along, applying the paint in exactly the right places, producing a marvelous masterpiece to be put on display. This is to result in good works: kindness, love, mercy, compassion, help to one another, meeting one another's needs." - Ray Stedman
