{"Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand." -Isaiah 64:8}

There is a Potter we all belong to. He molds us, breathes life into our very bones, and places us into the world with a mission. As believers, each of us exist in the world as a piece of the puzzle that the Potter desires to unify as one. Each piece of the Potter's work is a completely unique and incomparable work of art. Unlike any other artist, there's more to the Potter's artwork behind simply pleasing the eye. It's the beauty of His art that draws people in, captivates their heart, and deepens their desire to know their Maker. You see, every ounce of God's creation has His signature sketched across it. There is no denying this. And it is through God's creation that we are able to connect with Him. It is the ultimate Artist's gift to us. Our gift to Him is how we live the lives He's painted for us as a part of His masterpiece. 
We are breathing works of art made by the Potter himself, who hold meaning and purpose in the entirety of who we are. This is because we were made by the entirety of who God is. We were not made to simply sit and exist as something appealing to the eye. What appeals the eye to us are the creative, artistic ways in which we live for our Maker. Our expressions of art directed toward our Maker should always provide a warm atmosphere and invitation that is inclusive to every one. Every piece of art belongs to God and, therefore, has a role in His story. May our lives be a constant reminder of this truth through the ways in which we embody God's character into our own. Reflecting His image to the world is not only the greatest piece of art, but the greatest part of life that we get to take part in. 

{"For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." -Ephesians 2:10}
