You are a masterpiece. You are a beauty to behold. You are an asset to Me.God
Hey there! Welcome to my blog. I’m really glad to have you here. I pray that as you read today’s blog post, you begin or continue to walk according to your identity in Jesus name. Amen.
Have you ever been to an art exhibition before? There, an art is presented by an artist or a group of artists to an audience. Masterpieces, works of outstanding artistry, made with extraordinary skill, are presented.
You are God’s masterpiece! God’s crowning achievement. You are wearing His glory. You are royalty! You may be feeling something less than this. You might be struggling with one difficulty or the other. You might have low self-esteem. How is it possible that you are a 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
You are God’s masterpiece not because of your financial status, educational achievement, fame, background but because of what God has done in your life by His grace. You are God’s masterpiece because you are saved by God’s grace.
Just like an artist who takes his time to create a masterpiece, you were wonderfully created by God for His good works. He formed the delicate being that you are. He watched you as you were created and He is still watching you because He cannot afford to lose you.
Jesus died for your sins because of His love for you. You are God’s biggest achievement. There’s none as perfect as you. You are worthy. God considers you worthy and that’s why He can never give up on you.
Sometimes, you doubt your identity as God’s chosen. You did not choose God, He chose you instead. When God created you, He created you just as He is. Perfect. Beautiful. Worthy.
God chose you and wants to be expressed through your life. He saw your shortcomings. He knows your flaws. Nevertheless, He still considers you worthy. You were specifically created by God. You are a unique creation.
Why are you not living your life as God’s masterpiece?
• You are comparing yourself to others. Imagine being the only one living on earth. Would you act differently than you are doing now? Would you feel small or unworthy? You wouldn’t because your focus isn’t on anybody else.
Your focus should be on God. He is the One who created you for His own good works. When you decide to focus on happenings around and not God, you are going to sink and settle for a life less than God’s plan for you.
Comparison kills purpose. God gave you a unique purpose. No one in the entire world is like you. You are a solution to a specific problem. God created us (the world) with different spiritual gifts so I can fill you (and others) up and you can fill me (and others) up too. The aim of this is to create unity.
Walking in comparison is foolishness.
For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
II Corinthians 10:12 NKJV
• You are not studying the Word (properly). The Word of God is God Himself. If your physical father is a king and you do not live with him and learn from him, there is no way you can live like him. It’s same with God. You must constantly abide in Him. You must learn of Him. Since He is a King, when you study and meditate on His Words, you become like Him, you transform to His image.
On a final note, if you haven’t surrendered your life to Jesus. You are living a very dangerous life because there’s no crown upon your head hence you are a vagabond. To surrender your life to Jesus, you can say this prayer “Dear Jesus, I acknowledge that you died for my sins. I ask that You forgive me of all my sins and make me your child. Thank You because You have forgiven me. Amen.”
