As a born again, Spirit filled, child of God – you are His masterpiece.
Long before you were even born, in fact, before the world was created, God chose you. He had a special job planned for you then, and has now re-created you with that special job in mind. (Eph. 1:4, Eph. 2:10, 2 Cor. 5:17, Rom. 7:4)
You are now…
Established in Christ
This means you can stand firm in Christ. God will not allow you to be shaken. (Ps 55:22)
You have been set apart and commissioned for God’s kingdom and empowered with the gifts of the Spirit. (Acts 1:8, 1 Cor. 12:7-11)
The Almighty, most high God has bought you with his own blood. There is a seal of ownership on you. You are certified as His property. (1Pe 1:18-19)
Given the Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the guarantee of that ownership and also of the promises in God. (Eph 1:13, 1 Cor. 12:3)
Does this mean that you are now more important than the rest of mankind? No, it doesn’t. Do you have the right to sit on a holy pedestal and judge non-believers? No, you don’t. What you have is grace. All people were created in God’s image and Christ died for all of them. You have been commissioned and empowered to tell them that.
You are who God says you are. Do not believe the enemies’ lies anymore. He will try and convince you that you are worthless and insignificant. He doesn’t want you to know your true worth in Christ because he knows that you are God’s masterpiece, a powerful tool in the Almighty’s hand.
Go and be that.
