"For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus . . . ." (Ephesians 2:10)
The apostle could have used other words for ‘handiwork’ when he penned this verse. But God inspired him to use ‘poiema’ – the Greek word from which we get, ‘poem.’
Ponder a moment what that means. The Holy Spirit wants us to know that those in Christ Jesus are God’s profoundly artistic handiwork. Whatever your appearance, whatever your past or present, to Him you are poetry in motion, a wondrously beautiful composition of His ineffable creative love.
