Move Over, Mona Lisa

Description

When God looks at you, he sees his flawless and awesome masterpiece.

Bible Reading:  Ephesians 2:4-10

For we are God’s masterpiece—Ephesians 2:10.

You don't hang on the wall. You don’t stand frozen like a carved-up rock. Yet you are God’s masterpiece. More stunning than the most ornate sculpture or the most sublime painting, you are God’s cherished, hand-crafted creation. Look at what Ephesians 2 says about your worth and value:

  • You are alive together with Christ (verse 5).
  • You were raised up with Christ (verse 6).
  • You are now seated with Christ in heavenly realms (verse 6).
  • You are one with Christ Jesus (verse 6).
  • You have been saved by God’s special favor (verse 8).

And that’s only the beginning. If you have trusted Christ, every one of the fol­lowing huge truths is a fact about you. Whenever you wonder if you matter to God or anyone else, read this list aloud to yourself:

  • I have peace with God (Romans 5:1).
  • I am loved and chosen by God (Ephesians 1 :4).
  • I am a child of God (John 1: 12).
  • God’s Holy Spirit lives in me (1 Corinthians 3:16).
  • I have access to God’s wisdom (James 1 :5).
  • I am helped by God (Hebrews 4: 16).
  • I am reconciled to God (Romans 5:11).
  • I am not condemned (Romans 8:1).
  • I have been made right with God (Romans 5:1).
  • I have Christ’s righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21).
  • I am God’s ambassador (2 Corinthians 5:20).
  • I am completely forgiven (Colossians 1:14).
  • God meets all my needs (Philippians 4:19).
  • I am tenderly loved by God (Jeremiah 31 :3).
  • I am holy and blameless (Colossians 1 :22).

Paul meant it when he said, “Those who become Christians become new per­sons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17). When God looks at you, he sees his flawless and awesome masterpiece.

REFLECT: Do you believe that you are God’s masterpiece? Spend time chewing on any of those Bible facts about you that you have a hard time swallowing.

PRAY: Thank God for his great love for you.
