Have you ever been told that? Did you know it is a very Godly statement?
Eph 2:10 says "For we are [God’s] workmanship". The word for "work" there is poiēma (where we get our word poem). We are God’s poem. Very literally, you are a piece of work… God’s.
Here’s where this just wrecks me… Not when I’m skilled enough, smart enough, thin enough, rich enough, successful enough, well-known enough, liked enough, respected enough, popular enough, handsome enough, or feeling good enough. Now. No matter what anyone else thinks at this moment. I’m a piece of God work now, and I never HAVE to change to be more acceptable.
I know that… but why don’t I KNOW that… why can’t I live my day to day like that?
