The World’s Best Master Craftsman We are the work of His Hands Jesus is the creator Building things is His Nature He is described as a potter and we the clay He has plans for us
1) Craftsmanship is a Gift from God He is an Excellent Workman He gifted the builders of His Tabernacle & Temple (places where His presence would dwell). The work had to be beautiful!
Craftsmanship is a Gift from God EX 35:35 “The LORD has made these men highly skilled in all trades. They can do the work of jewelers, carpenters, and designers. They know how to embroider violet, purple and bright red yarn on fine linen. They know how to weave yarn on a loom. They can do all kinds of trades. They are master artists."
Craftsmanship is a Gift from God Making a House Fit for a King
Jesus was Raised by a Craftsman Jesus was the Son of such an artisan.
Jesus was Raised by a Craftsman Joseph was a skilled craftsman who worked not only with wood but with stone masonry. The usual term translated as "carpenter" in the Bible is misleading. The Greek term is “tekton,” which has a broader meaning. The Greek word “tekton,” in Mark 6:3, has the root meaning of artisan.
3) Jesus the Master Craftsman is Working on Us Three men were pouring concrete on a construction site. “What are you making?” a passerby asked. The first said, “I’m making $300 a week!” The second said, “I’m making a foundation.” The third, with a gleam in his eye and a note of excitement in his voice, said, “I’m building a great cathedral.”
Jesus the Master Craftsman is Working on Us Oscar Hammerstein II: "A year or so ago, on the cover of the New York Herald Tribune Sunday magazine, I saw a picture of the Statue of Liberty... taken from a helicopter and it showed the top of the statue's head. I was amazed at the detail there. The sculptor had done a painstaking job with the lady's hair, and yet he must have been pretty sure that the only eyes that would ever see this detail would be the uncritical eyes of sea gulls…
Jesus the Master Craftsman is Working on Us … He could not have dreamt that any man would ever fly over this head. He was artist enough, however, to finish off this part of the statue with as much care as he had devoted to her face and her arms, and the torch and everything that people can see as they sail up the bay... When you are creating a work of art, or any other kind of work, finish the job off perfectly. You never know when a helicopter, or some other instrument not at the moment invented, may come along and find you out.”
Concl: We are His Masterpiece Our Jesus is that kind of Master Craftsman He is working on you He will never throw you away He will do a great job and make something of you according to His plan He is patient and always willing to start over He finishes what He starts
