"Thought for the week" 18th The Master Artist"
Have you ever watched a sculptor creating a statue from clay?
He pushes against the clay with strong, skilful hands, working intently and often wetting it down so it might yield more easily.
Paul writes in Ephesians 2:10 that, ‘We are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ Since we are divine works of art – still in process – the Master Artist will not be satisfied until our human clay has a certain character. He loves us and will take endless trouble to shape and conform us to the image of His Son, Jesus. We might wish at times that He wouldn’t work the clay of our lives so hard, but reassuringly, God knows our limits. Yet, maybe other times we wonder why God made us as we are. We might wish we were better, or wish we were different. But to this Paul writes, “Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” And he concludes that God has the right to make us as He so desires (Romans 9:20-21) and the Master Artist makes no mistakes. If we take a closer glance, we see that through all our days and years, He works intently, with perfect skill, teaching us to yield to His divine pressure. Let’s not resist His work, but ask Him to reveal in us the image of what we can be.
