“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
I love this verse. It is my “quilt” verse. Let me explain.
When I make a quilt, I plan in advance the size, the colors, the pattern. I then collect the materials, cut the pieces and fit them together to create a masterpiece. I create quilts to express love and friendship. I create quilts to provide warmth and comfort.
A quilt is my handiwork, created by me to provide warmth and comfort in the future.
I am God’s handiwork (quilt) created in Christ Jesus to do good works (minister to others). God prepared me, provided all the pieces, made the necessary cuts and put them all together for this moment. And how incredible is it that I can be useful now, and this piece today will become a piece in my “quilt” tomorrow.
And how amazing to know that He planned my life, my path, my opportunities before time.
So as you walk through this day, be the “quilt” God created you to be today. Collect the pieces you need for tomorrow. And minister to those who cross your path.
YOU are God’s handiwork.
