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.

We are called to bring peace not conflict. To resolve, not revenge. Think about this…some of those battles that you are involved in right now actually have nothing to do with you! You just allowed yourself to be pulled into a vortex of rebellion. Wherever you are involved, you have been encouraged by the apostle Paul to live at peace with EVERYONE. It’s not conditional. Be careful WHAT you engage in. Be careful WHO you engage with. Today you may come upon people that try to bring you down. Remember to choose your battles wisely. Be a peace-maker not a peace-taker.
