For We Are God’s Masterpiece
Written by: Ricky Spears and Steve Dalton Recorded by: Ricky Spears
This is the second meditation in a series of meditations on our identity in Christ. As we examine who we are, we become more aware of who God is. This is especially true here. It may sound proud to declare, "I am a masterpiece", but when you really think about the word "masterpiece" you discover it is a humble declaration of the greatness of God.
In fact Paul wrote the words in Ephesians 2:10 in response to pride and racism in the church in Ephesus.
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 (New Living Translation)
Paul wanted them to know and God wants us to know it is God who is great, we are simply His masterpiece. And not just those with certain background or a particular skin color, or denomination, but “we”. “We”, all who have accepted Christ are God’s masterpiece. And we are here to do “the good things He planned for us” to do.
We pray this meditation will bless you and help you in your understanding of: who you really are, how truly valuable you are to God, how God views each of us and most importantly who God is.
