A Million Little Ways by Emily Freeman has been a life-changer for me. This particular quote has made me see myself and the things that I do a bit differently.
Now, look at Ephesians 2:10. “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” In Ephesians 2, we are a masterpiece made to do good things.
These English words used in the text–masterpiece, sometimes translated workmanship–these are translations of the original word used in the letter to the church in Ephesus, the Greek word poiema. Our English word poem comes from this same Greek word. Workmanship, masterpiece, poem –all these words in Scripture are used to describe God’s work–you and me.
God calls you his workmanship, his poiema. What happens when God writes poetry?
We do. We happen.
