“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

https://bible.com/bible/116/eph.2.10.NLT

 You are a masterpiece. Not just any masterpiece. You are God’s masterpiece. The creator of the universe declares that you are His masterpiece.

You are created new in Christ Jesus. When you live in Christ, there is a complete renewal of your life that takes place over time.

You have a purpose. You are able to do the good things that God planned for you. Today is an opportunity to do good things in other people’s lives.

Encouragement: Take time to enjoy being God’s masterpiece. He delights in you. He loves you. Receive the life changing work of Jesus Christ in your life. Recognize that God’s renewing work in your life takes time. Be ready to do good. Do good to others today.

Prayer: Dear God, thank You for making us your masterpiece. Thank You for the life changing work of Jesus Christ. Thank You for having a purpose in our lives for good works.  In Jesus name, Amen.
