RECREATED FOR EXCELLENCE

0

(You’re God’s Outstanding Masterpiece)
TO THE BIBLE; Ephesians 2:10 AMP
“We are God’s [own]handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew]that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].”
LET’S TALK
“My life is so miserable,” “I’m good-for-nothing,” “I can’t seem to do anything right.” These are some of the wrong thoughts that bombard the minds of many young people today, including Christians, because they’re unaware of what God has made them to be. As one who’s born again, you were recreated in Christ Jesus for excellence. Ephesians 2:10 says you’re God’s own specially-handcrafted masterpiece. This is by no means an idle statement; it’s a sovereign declaration of Almighty God. In the mind of God, this is who you are. How else should you see and think about yourself other than this!
When this becomes your mindset, others around you who’re ignorant and religious-minded may say you’re braggadocios. Don’t be perturbed by that. You’re God’s handiwork, recreated in Christ Jesus that you may do those good works which God predestined for you. You weren’t “renovated” or “refurbished”; rather you were “recreated” for the transcendent life of excellence and glory.
This makes you the new superman in Christ! God has placed His seal on you and certified you an excellent success. This is His testimony of you. He made you; therefore, He knows you more than you know yourself. He wants you to have the consciousness that you’re His excellent workmanship, designed by Him to produce good works therefore do excellent things.
GO DEEPER
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
1 Peter 2:9 AMP But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a [special]people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections]of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
