You Are God's Masterpiece

"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, NLT)

What is a masterpiece?  According to the dictionary, a masterpiece is defined as a work of outstanding artistry, skill, or workmanship; an artist's or craftsman's best piece of work.  Most times, when people think of a masterpiece they consider things like Leonardo Di Vinci's Mona Lisa or Michelangelo's Statue of David. Both Di Vinci and Michelangelo, artists with outstanding workmanship, are known among the greatest of all time, and the art aforementioned are considered as their best pieces of work.

The Mona Lisa is such an amazing creation that it is considered as one of, if not the most, valuable works of art in the world.  It's value is priceless.  I give it to Di Vinci; Mona Lisa exemplifies impeccable artistry.  However, there's another Master artist to which not even his greatest work can compare.

The artist I speak of is God, and one of His most outstanding works of art is YOU.  You are God's greatest expression of artistry, your value is priceless, and the uniqueness of your creation cannot be compared or duplicated.  You are a masterpiece, strategically designed by The Master Craftsman whose hands are only capable of creating perfection.  The works of God's hands are beautifully flawless.

Everything about you was carefully articulated by God, and absolutely nothing about you is a mistake.  You were fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14), marvelously constructed in the image and likeness of our wonderful Father.  He marvels at your beauty.

You are His reflection.

You are His love.

You are His choice.

You are His gorgeous, priceless, incomparable daughter...nothing and no-one can change that.

You are God's masterpiece and He has a master-plan for your life. He has purposed you to do good things in the earth.  Good things that only you, His one-of-a-kind gem, can carryout.

You are the cream of God's crop...He doesn't make 'em any better than you!

~May you live in His love.~
