You Are God’s Greatest Masterpiece

God is speaking clearly:  You are salt, and you are light. Some of you have lost your eternal vision, your belief in yourself, and, worst of all, you have lost the reality that God believes in you. You have lost the significance of your existence. God has a high opinion of you, and He has decided to move through you to bring heaven to the earth.

Paul tells us that we were created in His image, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:10 NIV). The Greek word for “workmanship” is poiema, from which we get our word poem.  We are God’s poem to the world, the art that displays His grace, His workmanship of love. Many would say that God’s greatest masterpiece is the sunset that paints the evening sky, or the millions of stars that twinkle so beautifully each night. Others might point to the majestic mountain ranges or the mighty, rushing rivers. And some might say the flowers that bloom in the spring or the many amazing creatures that populate our planet. All of those masterpieces are impressive, but none of them are the greatest that God has created. You are the greatest of God’s masterpieces. We are His “workmanship, created in Christ Jesus” (Eph. 2:10 NIV).

God declares from the hallways of heaven, “This is my beloved child, in whom I am well pleased and excited to call my own.”
