You are God's Masterpiece

Have you ever been so busy serving God that you wondered if what you did destroyed His work in you or reflected His work in you? Be encouraged. God conceived and began a good work in each of us. He created us to do good works and He continues to work in us. We are laborers together with God.

Maybe we should look to Christ and stop trying so hard to be like Him. If we spend time with Him, listen and pray, we will become like Him without all the strife and struggle. By rejoicing in God we will carry out His plan in exciting ways with things He has prepared for us to do.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.Ephesians 2:9-11

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for trusting us with your work. Help us to understand that we are your masterpiece and that you find favor in us. Let that be our confidence and encouragement to keep on keeping on. Amen.

Probably sounds familiar to you since we listened to the same sermon on Sunday. :)
