You are a Masterpiece

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,  which God prepared in advance for us to do. Eph 2:10

Can you wrap your head around this verse? You were made in the image of God, His workmanship. A masterpiece. You have been crafted and created by design. That design was set up before you were born so that you would accept Him as Lord, move towards His purposes, and start doing good things that put a smile on His face. You've had other options. All of us have. But at some point we all realize that someone has their eye on us. Someone is watching over us. Your life has purpose: to bring His glory into the lives of those that you are in fellowship with. As you build your relationship with Him, you will begin to truly enjoy all that comes with walking it out. Blessings will overtake you! Favor will surround you!

He carried them in two large tubs of which he ladled out each one into the smaller containers that he sold. One day when he got to the market, he realized that he had forgotten one of the ladles. He had no choice but to use one ladle for both products. Before long the two products had gotten so mixed up that you could hardly tell the difference.
You see when the child of God loses their purity, they are no longer different and distinct from the world. You and I are created to be like Jesus. To be holy as He is holy. To be in the world but not of the world.
Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. Matt 5:8
Once you have moved away from things that can taint and pollute your life, your vision of God will be so much clearer. Don't let people and things contaminate you. Get rid of everything that prohibits you from living a life of loving Jesus. Oh how spiritually fortunate are those that stay pure. 
They will see God clearly!
