Masterpiece

This year’s Summer Sermon Series was titled “Masterpiece.” I based it on Ephesians 2:10.

For the record, I love the book of Ephesians. It’s my third favorite book of the Bible to read. How I wish I could convince the church who Ephesians says they are! I think your church should read it at least once a year.

For this year’s sermon series I asked everyone to create a masterpiece. The idea is that part of living into our identity as God’s holy church is employing our creativity. Creativity, of course, put within us by our Creator.

And far be it for me to not join in what I ask the church to do.

My masterpiece is a song of praise. I summarized a lot of what we’ve talked about in the series. Not to be too original, I titled my masterpiece “Masterpiece.”

VERSE ONE

We have our victory in Christ our Lord.

There is no power he can’t overcome.

We share the mystery that we are one

made alive together by the love of God.

VERSE TWO

The church’s redemption is through the cross.

Filled to the measure all the fullness of God.

Now, we are strengthened together we walk

in the glory of God as his masterpiece.

CHORUS

God has saved us and raised us

We are one in the Lord.

Now our glory is only

When we live as one.

VERSE THREE

Marked by the Spirit our lives are transformed.

With every effort to live in God’s peace.

Now, it’s our witness that proves we believe

there is hope in the name of our Jesus.

BRIDGE

Praise be to the God and Father

of our Lord Jesus Christ

who has blessed us in the heavenly realms

with spirituals blessing in Jesus.

My kids will help me record it later. Why don’t you get to creating something!

Stay blessed…john
