Verse of the Day – Ephesians 2:10

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:10

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

We are God’s artistry in human form. He fashioned us (Psalm 139:13-16) and re-created us in Christ to display his magnificent work. God is the ultimate artist and artisan! You are one of his masterpieces! God designed each of us to be useful for doing good things and displaying his craftsmanship. Let’s not let anyone, especially not the evil one, convince us that we are not worth anything to others. God made and gifted us to honor him and bless his people (1 Peter 4:10-11). His grace saved and made each of us one of his canvases upon which he will provide the world with another masterpiece! We are the clay from which God will fashion a life that matters forever! Let’s live up to God’s high opinion of us, not to our negative self-talk, the criticism of others, or the demeaning words of Satan.

My Prayer…

Thank you, dear Father, for knowing me and re-making me by your grace in Jesus. Use me to do your will and lead me to the appropriate people so that I can most effectively minister to them. In Jesus’ grace-filled name I pray. Amen.
