“In the beginning…”, God created all the heavens and the earth, and it was and still is awesome! However, secular society wants to equate us (humans) with the rest of God’s creation, as if we are on an equal plane with the animals and plants of the world. This is not our correct position.
Ephesians 2:10 tells us, “For we are his masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
I love this image of you and me, as a masterpiece, the greatest expression of an artist’s work. Just think about some of the greatest works of art by de Vinci, Van Gogh, or Rembrandt. Today, the estimated price of the Mona Lisa is worth more than $1 billion. If the work of a man is worth that much, then your worth, as The Master’s final and greatest creation, is priceless!
Now, imagine a frame around every individual face that you see, including your own. How different would our families, our schools, our nation, our entire world be, if we regularly gazed with true wonder at all that is around us?
Today, as we look in the mirror or at the face of those we come into contact with, let’s realize that we are looking at a masterpiece!
