Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of October 3

Theme: Reflect God's Image

God's Masterpiece

Scripture: For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)

Play: Take turns pretending to be an artist creating a masterpiece. Paint or draw a picture either on paper or in the air. Have others try to guess what the “artist” is painting.

Talk: Every picture you draw is unique — there is not another one like it. An artist’s best paintings are sometimes called “masterpieces.” Masterpieces may be put on display in museums for others to see. The Bible says we are God’s masterpieces (Ephesians 2:10). He created us to do good works that He already planned for us. When people watch us obey God and do good things for others, they can see God’s creative work — His masterpiece — and learn of His love. What good works does God have for you to do today?

Pray: Ask God to help you do the good works He planned for you, and thank Him for making you His masterpiece!

— Christine St, Jacques
