Ephesians 2:10-12a: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship…….
Meditation: Millions of dollars have been paid for famous pieces of artwork. In 2017 someone paid $450.3 million for a painting called Salvator Mundi, which is a Latin phrase meaning Saviour of the world. It is one of Leonardo da Vinci’s paintings depicting Jesus Christ. I am sure in putting a value on the painting the buyer put much stock into the fact that it was a “da Vinci.” Since the Christian is a masterpiece created by God, what must we be worth? I suppose the answer lies in the nail pierced hands of the one that shed His blood to pay the price to purchase you.
Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, I thank you that my value is not found in my works but in Your work. I thank you for paying the price to purchase a sin stained soul that the world would see little value in. Thank you for the work you have done and are continuing to do. Amen.
