Ephesians 2: 8-10 “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.”
The book of Ephesians is one of my favorite books of the Bible and especially this chapter. The chapter starts out reminding us how at one time we were dead because of the sin in our lives. At that point we did not know God or have a relationship with Him. But God loved us so much that even when we not saved, He still sent Jesus to die for us and to redeem us. That is exciting! Check out verses 4 & 5 “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.” So no matter where you are at in life, know that God loves you so very much and He desires a relationship with you.
This brings us to our verses for today. You see when we believe, God saves us by His grace. It does not matter how many mistakes we have made or how bad our sins are. It does not matter if we think we are such a bad person that God couldn’t possibly love us or save us. Because God does love us and he wants to put our past behind us and look to an amazing future. You see on the day, we give our lives to the Lord we are placing ourselves in the hands of a master craftsman. He will create us into a masterpiece, one that has been changed from the inside out.
Where ever you are today, We pray that you realize how much God loves you and desires a relationship with you. HE knows you made mistakes in the past but what He cares about is the present and your future in eternity. So today choose life and submit yourself into the Master’s hands and allow Him to turn you into a Masterpiece.
