You are the handiwork of God. You are not a genetic accident but a creation of the living God. God made you for His purpose and glory. The word ‘workmanship’ means a work of art or a masterpiece. You are the expression of the great creator God. Like a fine painting signed by the artist, you are God’s masterpiece. Have you ever thought of yourself as God’s masterpiece?
Since before you were born, God has been working in your life. He drew you to Himself and called you to follow Him. You were saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus. You didn’t earn it or deserve it. He continues to work in you to make you just like Jesus. Every day, the grand master craftsman molds and forms you into His perfect image.
Made for a Purpose
God created you with a purpose in mind. He created you with the perfect mix of skills, gifts, and talents so you could be a unique minister of His love to the world. God has your days planned, and they are full of good works that bring Him glory.
So many people have the wrong idea when it comes to good works. Good works don’t save you. Good works will never get you into heaven. Good works follow salvation, but they don’t earn it. Good works are part of the Christian life. They are the natural expression of what God has done in your life. Your good works glorify God and point people to Christ.
Look at that promise one more time.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. – Ephesians 2:10 (NASB)
Make these confessions.
- I am the handiwork of God.
- He created me in His image, and I am His masterpiece.
- Every day, God plans good works for me.
- As I walk in good works, I bring glory and honor to Him.
In Jesus’ Name,
Like a master artisan, God is fashioning you into His perfect masterpiece. You will bring Him glory through the good works you do.
