How will we ever truly see ourselves as God’s Masterpiece? How will we ever change our thinking?
Last week we discovered that we were made in the likeness of God and that as He created mankind, He breathed the breath or Spirit of life into us! Powerful, every time I think of that!
John 4:24 says that “God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) …”
Since we are made in His likeness, that means we are Spirit beings, that live in a body (flesh and blood) and have a soul (our mind, will and emotions). 1 Thessalonians 5:23 says “May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of … Jesus Christ.”
When we ask Jesus to become Lord of our lives, it is our Spirit which is renewed! It is His Spirit that gives us peace, joy, healing, freedom and revelation! It is His Spirit which convicts us to draw nearer to Him ~ to want to know Him better; to learn more about His character, His thoughts and His heart ~ and that is how we begin to change how we think.
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10
Now that our Spirit is renewed, it is our responsibility to renew our mind, body and soul. I encourage you to spend time drawing near to God this week ~ getting to know Him by reading the Bible and spending time in prayer!
Do you want to see yourself as God does, get to know Him! We are made in His image, and it is our renewed Spirit that will begin to show us how precious and loved we are ~ for You ARE God’s Masterpiece ~ a new creation!
