Topic: Masterworks in the Making

In Touch Daily Devotional 15 May 2022 MESSAGE

To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the scriptures referenced throughout.

Michelangelo Buonarroti, the 15th-century Italian artist known for masterworks like David and the Pietà, once said this about his art: “The sculpture is already complete within the marble block before I start my work. It is already there. I just have to chisel away the superfluous material.”

Though not made of granite or marble, we are also creations of a Master Craftsman. Ephesians 2:10 says, “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” The Greek word translated as “workmanship”—poiēma—is the same root from which the English term “poetry” is derived, and it refers to a thing of notable excellence.

If you feel insignificant, remember what God said before lovingly crafting Adam: “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness” (Genesis 1:26). Like him, you’re created in God’s image, and through sanctification, you are coming to resemble your Master more every day. That’s a beautiful thing.

Think about it

• How does knowing you are a masterwork in progress change how you feel about yourself? About others? Who can you share this truth with today?

Bible in One Year: 2 Chronicles 15-17

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Through sanctification, we come to resemble the beautiful creation our Master envisioned.
