Yes, you are a masterpiece of God! The Bible starts right out in Genesis (1:27) saying that God created man in His own image. He says in the Psalms that He knit us together in our mother’s womb (139:13), and again in Psalms (139:14), that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Then in Ephesians (2:10) it says that we are the workmanship (a masterpiece) of God. God is perfect, and His Son, Jesus Christ is the holy spotless Lamb of God. Let’s break it all down. Somehow God took the dust of the earth and breathed life into it and called it man. Now, I don’t know how He did it, but I believe His Word is true, and if He said He did it, I believe it. That’s not a defense for the Lord. He doesn’t need any defense. But it certainly makes more sense to me than the big bang theory and even the evolution theory. Why hasn’t man kept evolving? Anyway, here we all are with these wonderful works of art. As life was breathed into us, all our “systems” were put into place and in perfect working order. In Him we live and move and have our being! (Acts 17:28) We are His masterpiece.
So, what do we do with these bodies we’ve been given? Some of us have “lean, mean machines”, some have tired and overworked bodies that could break down at any time, some are sluggish and maybe even lazy, and some of us have abused our bodies inside and out. Sadly, we take better care of our cars and many toys than we do our bodies. I’ll be the first to admit that I did. When I found out about my tainted blood, I lost sight of all God had done for me and turned inward. What a near- fatal mistake that was. I learned the second time around with PML- TURN TO GOD! Trust in our God. If God has a plan for my life I will overcome and I will survive and I will live. Really, what are our options ? Just to sort of exist and then die? Why not make our lives count for something. And to do that we have to take care of this temple we are borrowing while alive here on this earth.
You and I are all still a work in progress. Don’t ever give up. I’m not!!
