We are His workmanship!

"For we re His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10

Has the treasure of Truth been tainted and cheated for the way that it was presented to you?

Have you had a contact with a so called Christian?

Was that person offensive?

I personally have had a experience from a so called Christian. They did not take the time to care about their bad breath, body odor, dirty, holey clothes that they had on. They never once smiled as they proceeded to try to tell me about God. Even as they had finished they had used rude comments like "don't blame me or Jesus if you go to hell."

Sometimes people can't see past us to hear our message.

We will never have a second chance to make a first impression!

When we tell people about the love of God, and His saving grace it should be presentable, not cheap, unattractive, or out of date, but the best that we can give!

God worked through Solomon in First Kings Chapters 5-6 on rebuilding the temple.

What quality!

What detail!

It was exquisite.

With everything that was done, down to the tiniest detail was exact.

God cares about His workmanship in you!

When we look at the beauty and intimacy of the world that He created, you can see all the detail that was put into it.

As Christians we represent the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords.

Do you not always want to present your best to Him?

We may not have a fortune, or our wardrobe maybe limited, but we can always be neat and clean.

We as Christians have enough barriers to overcome in this society without friction from sloppy dress, poor workmanship, or offensive habits that would repel others than to attract.

We do not have to change our message, but let's present it in a little more attractive way.

Let's take more care in the things of God.

When Solomon built the temple everything had to just be precise.

Solomon only used the best wood, gold,stone, everything was done with precise care.

Solomon took care in what he was doing.

How much more care should we take with the things of God.

We are His workmanship and we should reflect that beauty and grace that was given to us from above.

God's people are to be living examples.

If you take a look in the mirror do you like what you see?

Everyday is a special day, seize it.

Let what is on the inside out, as beauty come from within.

When God looks at beauty, He looks at the heart.

"God judges persons differently than humans do. Men and woman look at the face; God looks into the heart." 1Samuel 16:7c Message Bible

Just remember that we are His workmanship.

God made nothing bad, He gave everything that was His to us to enjoy.

"And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in all understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship," Exodus 31:3
