Ephesians 2:10

For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them.


God has uniquely crafted each of us.

We have been created by Love itself (“God is love” – 1 John 4:8).

We in turn have a choice to either live in our uniqueness by using our gifts and talents for our own purposes (ego-centered)…or for God’s purposes (Love-centered).

We have the opportunity to be a channel of our Creator’s unconditional love.

Jesus showed us the way: Die to self-serving desires…so that God’s desires can rise in us.

Let go of the ego’s craving for power, prestige and possessions…all fixed on building a “false self”…so that our “true self” can be revealed.

You are God’s “handiwork”…God’s beloved work of art…just as you are.

Allow that understanding to settle in your soul.

How will you use your gifts and talents to do good works?

Know your belovedness. Feel the peace that it brings.

Then simply do the next loving thing.

Experience being in the flow of God’s love right now…and truly have life to the full.
