God’s Masterpiece!

A young man met with an accident. Being a son of a pastor, he was familiar with the bible. Doctors said that his two arms could not function again. Yet, they could perform surgeries for both the arms. On the bed, before his surgery, he called unto God, who heard his cry. Lord invited him to his service. He said: “Lord, the military will choose the healthiest, the film world will choose the most handsome, the corporate world will choose the smartest people, how can I serve without two arms.” Yet, he committed his life to the Lord. He was healed after surgery and started doing marvelous ministry.
Blemish? God required Sacrifice without blemish. (Exodus 12:5) The sacrifice was a shadow of things that will happen in future. Peter writes that Lord Jesus was the Lamb without blemish. (I Peter 1:19) That means Lord Jesus was without sin fulfilling the Law requirements. (Matthew 5:17) Will your governor accept an offering with blemish? (Malachi 1:8) Paul asserts that as sinners, humans are not competent or sufficient, but God makes a person worthy to do His will. (II Corinthians 3:5)
Weakness to Perfection: God exhibits his glory, power and majesty through weak vessels. Paul, who had a thorn in his body, wanted its removal, but was not granted. Instead, God gave him grace that will help him to shape his weakness into perfection by his power. (II Corinthians 12:9)
Surrender: Moses had to surrender all including his staff, his identity as a shepherd to become a shepherd of his people Israel. All his arguments were null and void. (Exodus 4) Joseph had to surrender his desire of reaching his home, to fulfill God’s purpose of feeding the hungry to preserve lives for the redeemer to come to this earth. (Genesis 45:5)
Instruments of righteousness: God uses surrendered people, by shaping and sharpening them as instruments of righteousness. (Romans 6:13) In fact, each believer exhibits His workmanship or Masterpiece. (Ephesians 2:10)
Have I surrendered to become a Masterpiece?
