redemption

You and I are the twice bought valuable living breathing masterpiece of a God.

Facebook said “what’s on your mind,” I thought about it deeply and this is what I thought. You asked for it Facebook so here goes.

Light, I can SEE!

Vibrating waves of energy entering my eyes, instantly, effortlessly understood by my grey and impossibly complex 3 pound computer – masterly engineered out of mere dirt and water!

It exists safely held in carefully artistically sculpted living bone that is then veiled in delicate skin.

My eyes! my hands! The world around me!

I exist as a miracle of intricate design set in contrast with the unfathomable formless nothingness of space that stretches unendingly in every direction.

I am a complex universe of design and function in contrast to that which has no function.

I am a masterwork of functioning living art, engineering and science expressed in fragile flesh and blood, dirt and water.

I am a something in an ocean of nothing.

A vibrant dot of life in a ocean of death.

I exist in nonexistence

A speck of meaning in the all encompassing meaningless all around me.

A speck of purpose in the absence purpose.

How ignorant that I consider consider anyone, including myself as common or ordinary, when my existence in this vast nothing as a “something” is an utter contradiction to the nothingness that exists all around me.

My every breath a masterwork of scientific understanding bending complex chemistry into life, into existence.

We are luminous artistic expression set in contrast to the incomprehensibly vast darkness.

We are master brushworks of living art placed upon a canvas of infinite nothingness.

We are supremely rare works of art lovingly crafted by a living spirit, the spirit of Love himself!

We are ALL so valuable we were each re-purchased individually by the most costly price,

The value he placed on each of us individually was the humiliation of the greatest.,

The value he placed on each of us individually was the punishment of one who was completely innocent,

The value he placed on each of us individually was the blood of a king.

The value he placed on each of us individually was the suffering of a God.

We are stunningly unaware that we are the deeply, deeply, deeply thought out, valuable masterpiece of a God.

“We are God’s workmanship”

We are the poem (POIEMA) (masterpiece of artistic expression) (artwork) of God.

This God with infinite knowledge had a infinite time to think about how to design you.

You and I are the twice bought valuable living breathing masterpiece of a God.

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know it.

If someone spray painted obscenities all over VanGoghs “starry starry night” masterpiece to try to devalue it would still be a masterpiece under the devaluating vandalism. Our world and our lives are all like that. A defaced masterpiece.  Deep beneath it’s still a masterpiece. If someone could remove the spray paint it would be a valuable masterpiece again.

VanGoghs mother thought so little of his work that she used his paintings to line chicken coops. How many masterpieces were turned into chicken crap we will never know. His brother saw value and thankfully rescued what he could.

How many lives are like that. Because no one saw the value of those paintings they were just used to crap on. They didn’t know the value. They didn’t know they were made by a painting genius. Today even a half hearted VanGogh scribble would be near priceless. The most (confirmed) expensive van Gogh was “Portrait of Doctor Gachet” (1890) sold for $82.5 million at Christie’s New York way back in May 1990. Many paintings however, maybe even more valuable were just crapped on and trashed.
Every one knows the value of VanGoghs work now, not so back then. Only one really knows our true value. Beneath the spray paint or chicken crap on your life there is a masterpiece. Made by the greatest artist to ever exist. God knows it’s value even though its been vandalized. He stepped up to pay its true price even while it was spray painted. He knows it’s a masterpiece underneath and he knows how to remove the damage.

Confidence in Jesus begins the process of removing the vandalism done to our souls.

Continued faith in him allows him to clean all the damage. “as is you faith so be it done unto you.”
Without the connection of faith in jesus however there is no way for him to help. “without faith it is impossible to receive anything from God.” Faith in what God says is real makes it become real in your life as well. His kingdom and your kingdom merge. Without that faith in Jesus he has no way to reach you. He put you in charge of opening and closing doors and they open or close by your faith not his. Your in charge of earth, he is in charge of heaven. He has opened a door in heaven. Faith Jesus is that door. He is the door to the sheep. He is the way. The legal, approved way into Gods reality starts and is finished by faith in Jesus sacrifice. Faith placed in Gods word is faith in Jesus because Jesus is God’s word. Each piece of Gods word is an open door. When believed in your heart it merges God’s reality with yours.

The true value is the price that was paid by someone who knows the true value of the work.

We are ALL so valuable we were each re-purchased individually by the most costly price,

The value he placed on each of us individually was the humiliation of the greatest.,

The value he placed on each of us individually was the punishment of one who was completely innocent,

The value he placed on each of us individually was the blood of a king.

The value he placed on each of us individually was the suffering of a God.

We are stunningly unaware that we are the deeply, deeply, deeply thought out, valuable masterpiece of a God.
