Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are His masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand in order that we would walk in them.”
Think about that for a minute.
A thing of beauty.
A work of art.
Imagine a sculptor creating the most amazing statue. Pouring over the design, putting heart and soul into seeing their vision come to life, piece by piece.
Then, stepping back and looking at it with absolute satisfaction and delight.
Now imagine that sculptor watching as his creation, his masterpiece, slowly began to pick itself apart, piece by piece. Everything that he saw as beautiful, the masterpiece saw as all wrong.
Guess what friends?
That is exactly what we do when we believe the lies that we aren’t…
We’re telling God, our sculptor, that He must have messed up. We must be the exception to that ‘masterpiece’ business.
But, here’s the thing, we all know that when it comes to a piece of art, it only really matters how the artist views it. Right? You know, it’s that whole “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” thing.
Well, we are the ‘beauty’ and He is the ‘beholder’.
So, what would happen if we began to see ourselves the way that God sees us? What if the masterpiece was able to appreciate it’s own beauty? The beauty created by it’s Master.
You were created with purpose, with intention. In fact, you were made in HIS image.
And, sweet friends, that artist, your Master Designer, He thinks you are pretty amazing!
