KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them”.
The Holy Spirit gave an amazing truth concerning the Christian through Apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:10
Now let’s take the translation of our key scripture from the amplified bible: “For we are His workmanship (His own master work, a work of art), created in Christ Jesus (reborn from above-spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used) for good works, which God prepared for us beforehand (taking paths which He set), so that we would walk in them (living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us”. This scripture is amazing. One point comes out so clear in these Pauline revelations; and that is, we are made to know who we are. This is very important.
In this very revelation the Holy Spirit makes us see that we are the workmanship of God, God’s own masterpiece and work. On many occasions the quality and performance of any object is dependent on the credibility and track record of the manufacturer. He also said we are reborn from above and are spiritually transformed. We are made of the substance of our Lord Jesus Christ. We must never lose sight of who we are. The Lord Jesus always referred to who he was. If we are made in heaven and dispatched to this earth like Jesus, then we can also say we are the light and salt of the world (Matthew 5:12-14).
We have been designed for good works. He even said he has prepared the paths for us to walk in. We have been designed for the path of righteousness. We have been designed to bring solutions to the world. We have been designed to conquer the enemy of mankind (Satan and his host) that men would breath an air of freedom.
There is no failure with us. There is nothing that would not glorify God about us. We have to set up our minds this way. We have to meditate on these things to the point that we see ourselves as a special people on this earth with a glorious life. Philemon 1:6 states “that the communication of your faith may become effectual through the acknowledgement of every good thing which is in you, in Christ Jesus”. We have to acknowledge all the wonderful things in us in Christ Jesus. This would cause us to yield very positive results by our faith.
I am God’s masterpiece. I am designed for excellence and perfection. I have success, victory and greatness in me. I am a great success in this life.
