My son loves to build with his legos. Every time he creates a new piece I’m just as impressed as the last. We call them his little masterpieces. He is just a little child learning to build but he does produce some pretty unique pieces.
Imagine what a masterpiece coming from God is like. Think about it for a moment. Can you imagine it? If you cannot, look no further than yourself. His word declares, “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”.
As God’s creation, what characteristics of a masterpiece do we have?
A masterpiece is special: Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Clearly, Jeremiah was special to God. You are special to him too.
A masterpiece is carefully constructed: Psalm 139: 13-16 says, “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them”.
So if you ever feel like a failure, a debacle, a disaster or a flop, please remember what a masterpiece you are in the eyes of God.
