God's Masterpiece
Gods’ Masterpiece

Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].”

We are the masterpiece of God. He designed us in such a way that our minds our brilliant. I believe even the smartest Pearson that has walked the earth has only just tapped into just a little bit of it. Before Adam sinned He operated in a powerful realm. He had a spirit that was alive to God without any shame or guilt to hinder him. He also had a mind that had no sin in it and it operated very clear. His intellectual ability was amazing. After God created the earth he told Adam to name all of the animals. Adam would look at an animal and his mind would configure a name for the beast that best described its characteristics.

Scientists say that the most intelligent person just uses a few percent of their brainpower. I believe we lost that other percent when man sinned in the Garden of Eden. God told Adam if he ate of the tree he was not supposed to he would die. However, because of Jesus who has redeemed us we don’t have to live limited (not even in our minds).

The Bible tells us that we have the mind of Christ (the Anointed One and His anointing). We can tap into the mind of Christ for wisdom, creative ideas, problem solving and anything else we need. Today, as you go about your day, remember that you are God’s masterpiece!

 
Below is a funny paragraph that will help demonstrate how awesome the mind is. Someone showed it to me awhile ago. The words are written incorrectly, but you will be surprised how you will still be able to read it.

I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdatnrd what I was rdaning the phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid aoccdrnig to rscheearch taem at cmabrigde uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in what oredr the ltteers in a word are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is that the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.

Such a cdonition is arppoiately cllaed Typoglycemia.
