Today we start a new 3 post mini-series which is titled …. You are God’s work of art so let’s celebrate the uniqueness of each of our individual lives.
Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Do identical twins have identical DNA? Yes (at first) and No (later in life). Although it is true, they have different fingerprints. Yet each human life is unique.
Millions of snowflakes fall every year around the world, and yet no two snowflakes are alike! If a hundred artists spent a year designing as many snowflakes, they couldn’t come up with the same variety. Every single snowflake is completely unique.
Equally astounding is the variety of human beings who have lived, now live, and will live on the planet Earth. God has created each one of us as a unique creation!
Believe it or not—no one else is just like you. Your physical appearance, your voice and personality traits—your habits, intelligence, personal tastes—all these make you one of a kind.
Even your fingerprints distinguish you from every other human being—past, present, or future. You are not the product of some cosmic assembly line; you are unique.
But perhaps the most important fact of your identity is that God created you in His own image (Genesis 1:27). He made you, so you could share in His creation, could love and laugh and know Him person to person. You are special indeed!
The psalmist wrote in one of his most beautiful prayers, “I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14 made= the same Hebrew word for embroidery).
God knew you even before you were born. Then, and now, He has plans just for you, plans conceived in love.
God loves you and has an awesome plan for your life.
Closing Prayer. Lord, I thank you because I am relevant in your kingdom. You Lord God made us all unique. Lord, please let me be the change that the world needs. Use me in and for the world, let me be the salt that will help this world, and let me be a light that will shine in this dark world. Amen
