Masterpiece

My mom bought Eve a lullaby CD that we recently started playing at night. A lot of the songs are beautiful and will make momma’s tear up, but one called Masterpiece always stays with me. As I lay by Eve at night, I think about how true it is for my little girl – but I also wish that others knew that it was true for them as well. I feel like adults need to hear it too, not just kids.

You are God’s Masterpiece.

Maybe you never felt that way. Maybe your parents never told you, but 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

It’s easy to look at little ones and say they are a Masterpiece, but then we grow up and life happens – we make mistakes, we hurt others and ourselves, others hurt us, we get some scars, some callouses, some fear, some insecurity, some real life… and then we definitely don’t feel like Masterpieces.

I know I’ve been there – where you just feel like a bunch of pieces scattered about. Yeah some places of your life look put together, but some places just feel broken.

I love that Ephesians 2:10 says we are God’s Masterpiece – created anew in Christ Jesus. Yes, we are God’s Masterpiece when we are born because He knit together so carefully an intricate and beautiful human but we are also God’s Masterpiece because He knew before we were born that we would need to be created anew. Our heart would need to be reborn because sin and death and scars happen in life.

But, He still sees us as His Masterpiece. Jesus makes us Whole and Complete.

You are God’s Masterpiece. Do you believe it?

I hope so, because you have a purpose. The last part of Ephesians 2:10 says, “He created us anew so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”

Maybe one of those good things God would have you do is tell someone else that they are valuable, that they were created with worth, and that they are God’s Masterpiece.
