The Master’s Workmanship
Read Isaiah 38:1 through 39:8; Ephesians 2:1–22
A mason’s job is rarely appreciated anymore. Brickwork is everywhere, and behind each brick is the work of some skilled individual who laid that brick by hand. He adds mortar smoothly and lays the brick on top, level, straight, and in just the right place. Course by course, the mason works to get the job done, until a beautiful home, or retaining wall, or fireplace rises out of nothingness. The more experienced the mason, the more effortless he makes it look. When he walks away, what he has made stands as a testament to his workmanship.
Ephesians 2 says God does the same thing with us.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).
When God created humanity out of the dust, He made it look easy because He’s so powerful. But each person is a masterpiece, bearing the stamp of the One who made him or her.
Challenge for Today: As you notice beautiful things around you today, remember you are the wonderful design of the God who made you.
