“Do you know what it means that you are God’s workmanship? What is art? Art is beautiful, art is valuable, and art is an expression of the inner being of the maker, of the artist. Imagine what that means. You’re beautiful, you’re valuable, and you’re an expression of the very inner being of the Artist, the divine Artist, God Himself” – Tim Keller
We are God’s masterpiece, “poiema”, word only used at creation and in Ephesians 2. We are a new creation “kainos” – Greek for “new, of a whole new kind; never seen before, uncommon, unprecedented, unheard of, novel.”
God, Elohim (Creator) says of us: “I have chosen you,” “I am with you”, “I am your God,” “I will strengthen you,” I will help you.” “You are mine,” “I formed you.”
Isaiah 40:31, “But those who wait upon the LORD will renew their strength” or another translation “those who entwine their hearts with Yahweh will experience divine strength.”
