You've probably had plenty of things in your life that have made you feel more like a post card than a masterpiece. Maybe you've been rejected, ignored, hurt, or used. Maybe you've been criticized and put down by people who didn't know who you really are. You have this lie playing in your brain that you're not worth much, you can't do much, and you're not good enough. That's just it - it's a lie.
Ephesians 2:10 from the Word of God says, "We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." You are God's workmanship. You're unique and a one-of-a-kind original masterpiece. You may not feel like you're a masterpiece. You may not have been treated like you're a masterpiece, but the One who designed you says that's exactly what you are. From the time that egg and sperm came together, God was creating an original and building into you the qualities, experiences, and capabilities to make a unique difference. All this was "to do good works which God prepared in advance" for you to do. You're a one-of-a-kind original! You're priceless!
Remember, it's not your friends who determine what you're worth, or your critics, or your family, or your culture, or your boss. It is your Designer, God, who gave you your worth the moment you were conceived. Your worth has intrinsic value, not because of how much money you make, what title you have, or whether anyone asks you out or not. You are God's workmanship. No one on earth can give you your worth, and no one on earth can take it away. Your worth from God is untouchable!
There are three words in this verse that point us in the direction of where personal worth can be found - "in Christ Jesus." It's when you're in Christ Jesus that you finally realize how much you're worth. You don't know who you are until you're in the hands of the one who loves you most and thinks you are so valuable. God's Son died for you, paying for your sin with His life. That's how much He thinks you're worth!
Maybe you've never given yourself to Jesus, or put all your trust in Him to be your personal rescuer from the sin that keeps you from knowing your Creator. This could be your day to open up to His love and get a personal relationship with your Creator.
God wants you to live like the masterpiece He created you to be. You've been designed by the Master Artist and paid for with the Master's life. You are priceless!
