"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. Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, Vincent Van Gogh's "Stary Night", and the "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo Devinci, are just a few of some of the greatest masterpieces in the world.
These artists had a vision and worked tirelessly to create their works of art for something bigger...many not knowing how grand or what an impact their creations would make. Rarely do we think of ourselves as beautiful, captivating or worthy, but we are.
In fact, WE are God's masterpieces. Unlike the aforementioned artists, God DID have a plan for His work of art. He knew exactly what you would grow to become and the thousands of lives you would impact. Instead of being confined to a museum, God made you to roam the Earth and show off the masterpiece that is YOU.
Merriam-Websters Dictionary defines the word masterpiece as: "a work done with extraordinary skill; especially : a supreme intellectual or artistic achievement."
Do you see that? You. God's precious work, was done with extraordinary skill, supreme intellect and artistic achievement....Woo! Who needs another's compliment when you've got the word of God flooding you with them?
Lady, you are His "pièce de résistance"!
Your works are far too marvelous for us to understand. However, show me how to see myself through YOUR eyes. Unveil to me, the masterpiece that I am. Give me the courgae to be bold, and yet humbly exhibit the beauty and grace You made me with. What a work of art You've made in me! For that, I'm eternally grateful.
