The Free Dictionary defines a masterpiece as: An outstanding work of art or craft; the greatest work, as of an artist; something superlative (of the highest order, quality, or degree) of its kind. When I think of a masterpiece, I think of the Mona Lisa, the Sistine Chapel, and even the Cristo Redentor, but, when God thinks of a masterpiece, He thinks of you and I. Ephesians 2:10 (NLT) says,

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

I know it’s difficult to wrap your mind around, but out of all the things on earth – the sky, the oceans, the mountains – you and I are His “greatest work.” I’m sure millions of people visit the Louvre Museum every year to feast their eyes on the breathtaking masterpieces, but God waits for you to wake up every morning so He can view His masterpiece. **G.I.G.**

    I think if more people saw God and themselves in this way, we would have more appreciation of Him, and see more value in ourselves. High self-esteem is a beautiful thing! Great post!

      I totally agree. If more people knew God’s nature and how much He loves them, they would love themselves more. Thanks!
