Heavenly handcrafted

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works”

Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

‘Workmanship’ sounds like a master craftsman using his hands to custom create something. If he has to make several copies, each piece is tediously crafted. Similar, yet very unique.

We are all unique, created with unique gifts, desires and abilities. Therefore, it doesn’t make sense to compare ourselves to others. We just need to be “the best me I can be”. That comes out as we depend on God more and more in every area of life, especially in doing ‘good works’; helping others, giving our time or money toward a cause, serving in a church or ministry…

Not only does who we are start to blossom, but our mission or purpose in life starts to unfold to us.


Heavenly Father, as I depend on You and help others, show me my purpose. Don’t let me get in the way of the fulfilled individual You uniquely created me to be. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
