Who Are You Becoming?
We are God’s masterpieces — chosen and set apart by God (Ephesians 2:10; Ephesians 4:24; 1 Peter 2:9-12). But in the reality of life, we often don’t feel like the masterpieces we should know we are. In the same way, we know the good we’re supposed to do, but somehow don’t get around to doing it (Romans 7:15-20). As Christians, when we get stuck with this tension, it hurts our testimony to those who are watching — those that God has placed in our lives. There has never been a time when God’s people need to be more like Jesus than right now. The Holy Spirit is at work in our lives because His greatest desire is to see us transformed (Philippians 1:6-11). There is a process to the making of every masterpiece — and the question is whether or not we’ll allow Him to take over the process. The path will be painful and it will take time, and we need to be committed to not walking away when things get hard. Allowing God to work within us will make us more like Him, and when we look more like Him, others in turn will see the heart of Christ.
