BIBLE READING: Ephesians 2. 1-10
Have you ever been to a museum? It has always been a dream of mine to visit the famous Louvre in Paris. It was built in 1792 and contains nearly 35,000 items including the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, and many other works that are considered “masterpieces.” What if I told you that you didn’t have to travel all the way to Paris to see a masterpiece? In fact, you visit lots of masterpieces every day at the grocery store, at a red light, at your workplace, and even at your church. Paul tells us “we are His workmanship..” (Ephesians 2.10). Another word for “workmanship is “masterpiece.” The Almighty carefully crafted every person in this world. Today, there are more than 7 billion people on this planet and no two people are exactly alike; each person is God’s masterpiece, and the world is His museum. What do we do with these masterpieces? We admire them, gaze at them, and even learn from them. Today, as you come into contact with dozens of people, take notice of them, communicate, and learn from them, for they are God’s workmanship. Don’t forget to look in the mirror as well, because the same Artist who spoke the world into existence, and framed the world with His hands, made you as well…His Masterpiece.
