“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
Christians are human and face human trials and tribulations daily. One common misconception is once you commit your life to Christ all your problems go away. Anyone who has walked this Christian path knows that is not true. With Christ, our problems don’t instantly go away; with Christ we have an anchor to steady us through life’s storms.
If life’s storms have you feeling down on yourself or others, remember that we are all God’s workmanship. Workmanship is defined as the art or skill with which something is made or executed. We are God’s artwork, so to speak. We should not feel that we – or others – are inferior or without merit based upon the world’s ideals. God has already deemed us worthwhile and valuable. The world’s opinions are constantly changing; God’s Word is unchanging. Let’s start believing what God says about us and place less value on the world’s view.
May God’s blessings continue in your life.
