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. (NLT)
You Are God's Masterpiece
Decades later whenever I hear the word masterpiece I still think of the sweet, tender song that Christian artist Sandi Patti recorded in 1989 for her first born child, Ana. It may have even been sung over you at your baby dedication if you were born in the 90’s. My favorite lyric in the song, “He breathed in you a song and to make it all complete, He brought the masterpiece into the world. You are a masterpiece, a new creation He has formed.”
“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.” That verse is Ephesians 2:10. There are so many wonderful things packed into that little verse. You were never unplanned. God not only planned your creation, He formed every single part of you. He also planned so many good things for you to accomplish long before anyone even knew you were a possibility! You have a Kingdom purpose! And, accepting His Son, Christ Jesus, as our Savior makes us a new creation.
We could use that Bible verse in our prayer today. “Thank You, God, that I am Your masterpiece. That You created me and You have a master plan for my life. Don’t let me miss a single thing that You have planned for me to do! And all the glory goes to You, Lord. Amen.”
What does God say about you? You are God’s Masterpiece.
