Our Product Label Reads: "Made by God"
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
(Ephesians 2:10, NASB)
The world of retail bombards us with tags and labels. They’re all over the packaging and sewn on our clothes, often in the most uncomfortable places. The labels often use phrases like “made in”, “made by” or “prepared by.” The packaging contains a User Guide translated in several languages that tells you how to use the product.
As a Child of God, it gives me comfort to know who made me and that I bear His label. I know my purpose. I was created to have an intimate relationship with God. I know that God anointed me with unique gifts, talents and skills for the assignment I have — to teach His Word and encourage others in the marketplace how to integrate their faith at work. Anytime I have a question about my life, all I have to do is read my “Operations Manual” (Bible) to find the answers. My Bible is filled with God’s truth and wisdom. It gives specific instructions for solving everyday problems. It tells me all need to know. It explains how to live according to God’s “design specifications.”
Child of God, have you taken a close look at your label lately? Do you know God’s will and divine purpose for your life? When was the last time you studied and meditated on God’s Word to understand His instructions? Do you spend time daily in prayer to learn about God’s “Lifetime Warranty,” so you can operate in excellence? Have you thanked Him that He gave you the Holy Spirit and filled you with His grace, so you can operate smoothly and effectively? If your answer is, “No, I know I should, but it seems I get busy with life”, stop and push the pause button, and “Be still.” I encourage you to get on your knees today and talk to God. Seek Him for answers to your questions about life. After all, He made you!
Father, thank you for designing and creating me in your image and likeness. I am your workmanship. Holy Spirit, teach me to live by faith that I might give God glory and honor in all I do. Through the blood of Jesus and in the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
