This is a gorgeous stone wall & archway in Eleuthera.

It’s sure didn’t get there by random chance!

It was designed to be both functional & beautiful.

Christian, God has made and remade you to be both functional & beautiful too!

In Psalm 139:14 it is assured that:
“I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made … “.

So you are PHYSICALLY- designed: Your body
functions .

But you are also MINISTRY-designed!

Ephesians 2:10:
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before hand, that we should walk in them.”

The Greek word which is translated into the English word “workmanship” is POEMA. We get our English word “poem” from this Greek word.

As no two poems are the same, the specific good works which God has ordained for each of us to do are utterly unique to each of us!

Remember: God has designed you both to function and to minister to His glory.

That makes you a one-of-kind design!  

Really it’s not your designer jeans that are important, it’s your designer YOU which is most important!


Beth and I were once in Old San Juan Puerto Rico. We were in a group touring the Old Fort there.

Another tour group went by us & its leader was carrying a bright Norwegian flag.
The flag was a way for the group members to stick with their tour guide.

Because Beth is half Norwegian, I asked to borrow the flag and I had my wife
hold it so I could take a fun picture.

It was not evident that Beth is Norwegian until she carried Norway’s flag.

We have true colours as Christians.

In Matthew 5:16 our Lord said:
“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.”

Our true colors as Christians should be both light (a reflection of God’s light) and good works.

Do persons see God’s light and good works as they observe you? This is the flag you are to carry! It will identify you as being a Christ-follower.
