Don’t you love when you learn something you didn’t know? It’s been staring at me for years but until Pastor Josh brought it out in a sermon I had no idea.
For you faith people – I bet you’ve read this passage a zillion times – I know I have.
For we are his workmanship [poem], created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Let Me Explain
workmanship, potema (poy-ay-mah); Strong’s 4161: from the verb poieo, “to make.” (Compare poem and poetry.) The word signifies that which is manufactured, a product, a design produced by an artisan. Poiema emphasizes God as the Master Designer, the universe His creation (Romans 1.20), and the redeemed believer as His new creation (Ephesians 2.10). Before conversion our lives had no rhyme nor reason. Conversion brought us balance, symmetry, and order. We are God’s poem – His work of art. [Word Wealth, Spirit Filled Life Bible]
Shall We Dance?
I am God’s poem – I am His work of art.
And, so are you when you give Him your heart and receive His free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
It’s been a while since we’ve happy hallelujah’ed dance. Grab your dancing shoes, I’ll turn the music on.
These precious souls are His poem in the fields of heaven. Every one of them His work of art.
