God's Masterpiece

Once you were dead because of your 
disobedience and your many sins.


But God is so rich in mercy,
and he loved us so much,
that even though we were dead 
because of our sins,
he gave us life 
when he raised Christ from the dead.


God saved you by his grace when you believed.
And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.


Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done,
so none of us can boast about it.


For we are God’s masterpiece. 


He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,
so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Ephesians 2:1, 4-5, 8-10 NLT


You, my friend ~ YOU ~ are God's masterpiece.  He has created you and called you for such a time as this.  Shine brightly for him today.



Many blessings,

  2. Yes! Beautiful! As Ephesians 2:10 says, "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

    We must all remember that we are all a masterpiece, because we are all a piece of the Master! God bless.
