Ephesians 2:10 says, “ For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago”. Over the last couple of weeks, I have gained a better understanding of the mind and heart of our creator God through conversations with a creator of violins. I am fascinated by how THE creator can be seen in A creator of violins.  As a violin is formed and fashioned by her creator with a purpose and a plan, we too are created by God in His image with a specific purpose and plan. You and I were created in Christ Jesus to do good works. Violins are not created to be placed in museums, but played for the enjoyment of others.   My largest misconception about violins involved how the instrument sounded in relation to its value. There are many other more important factors in relation to a violin’s value including skill of the maker, country of origin and age of the instrument, rather than the sound that it makes.  Too often as people, we put too much value into what we sound like or what we do, when what is most valuable about us is who is our creator (God) and our country of origin (Heaven). You are valuable because you were made in the image of God. Stay close to Jesus. -Pastor Bryce
