You are God's work of art

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works...
Men are often told to "get in touch with their feminine side" in order to be more integrated and sensitive human beings. But what we really need… men and women alike… is to get in touch with our spiritual side! And Simon Peter is a great example.
When Jesus first encountered Simon Peter, he was rough and unrefined. But in this chunk of human granite the Master Sculptor saw the world-changing potential within him. He saw a great preacher, a writer of Scripture, and the leader of the church!
Don't you wonder what Jesus sees in you? He's looking at you right now, looking beyond the barrenness of a blank canvas or a piece of granite to see the promise… the artistry that his own hand can fashion in your life! Jesus sees what you will do for his kingdom when you yield yourself to his hand… his words… his ways.
You and I are his workmanship. Jesus is working on us. We may not be there yet. Others may not see our potential, but I assure you, Jesus does!
You can be like Simon Peter. Trust yourself to the hand of Christ Jesus and let him reveal the glorious potential of your life transformed by his love.
JESUS SEES WHAT YOU WILL DO FOR HIS KINGDOM
WHEN YOU YIELD YOURSELF TO HIS HAND.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
