EPHESIANS 2:10 NLT 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Outwardly, you may not appear to be much of a masterpiece. You may look like a piece of junk. But inwardly, and in reality, you are God’s work of art — and God does not make any junk.
All that is outward and seen is only temporary — like the cocoon the butterfly inhabits for only a short time. So, while you should take care of your present body, don’t be overly concerned about it. Most importantly, don’t think of yourself as just the body you are now living in.
You are a child of Almighty God, creator and ruler of the universe. Someone God is “raising” to be His companion for eternity. You are NOT insignificant.
Admittedly, you are a work in progress. God still has more work to do with you — but He is the artist, and He will finish His work. (Hint: as you submit to God, the easier it is for Him to change you into the wonderful image He has in mind.)
Someday, everyone will clearly see what God has done in you: making you a wonderful, unique individual worthy of Himself.
