When we read the entirety of Ephesian 2, we find the true message of God’s workmanship. Without Jesus, we wander aimlessly. We are incapable within our own instincts and desires to be the masterpiece that the world tells us to see in the mirror.
The truth is that we are all born waiting for the moment of redemption, when the dirt and stone of our true nature is chiseled away by the hand of the Master. In Christ, a masterpiece emerges. In Him, we are given the privilege of participating in the good work of serving, loving and sharing the truth.
This week, I submit myself to the good works, in Jesus, that make me beautiful.
