|Description:||Discover Your True Worth in Christ.
What comes to mind when you hear the word masterpiece? Perhaps you think of a beautiful painting, a spectacular home renovation, or a captivating sunset. But few of us would describe ourselves with that word. We tend to listen instead to the lies that define us as rejected, unwanted, less than, ugly, stupid, or a failure. Sometimes we can feel more like worthless junk than a valuable masterpiece. Yet that is exactly what God’s Word says that we are!
In For His Glory, Marian Jordan Ellis leads us in an in-depth study of Ephesians to help us dismantle the lies we’ve believed about ourselves and replace them with a new identity built on God’s Word. The truths in this beloved epistle speak to the core beliefs we carry about ourselves, revealing to us our part in God’s magnificent design to redeem a people for Himself who reflect His glory to the world. Drawing on her own journey of transformation and her passion to equip women to overcome shame, insecurity, inferiority, and condemnation, Marian invites us on a journey to discover our true worth in Christ, our status as beloved children of God, and our glorious calling as His masterpiece.
Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook and Leader Guide.
In Session 1, Marian prepares the canvas for our study by reminding us that regardless of our background or story, we all need rescuing and are worthy of rescue. We have a loving Father who gave everything for us because we are His masterpiece.
In Session 2, Marian reminds us that the only real hope—and our greatest hope—is found in Jesus Christ. She helps us understand what it means to be "in Christ," clothed in His righteousness and free from striving. As God’s redeemed, we showcase His glory to the world.
Session 3 explores who we are in Christ and how we should live in light of this truth. Rather than labels such as unwanted, unloved, unattractive, or unusable, we can know that each of us is a saint, a child of God, a masterpiece, and a citizen of heaven.
In Session 4, Marian helps us understand what it means to "walk worthy," explaining that this is not a call to performance-based striving but about walking in our identity, keeping in step with the Spirit who dwells within us.
In Session 5, we learn what it means to radiate the glory of God—the Light of Christ—in a dark world as we love, forgive, live as children of God, and bear the fruit of the Spirit. We can do this only by being with Him, spending time with Him in worship, the Word, prayer, and service. Rather than just looking to Jesus to be saved, we can become like Him as we continue to behold Him.
Session 6 teaches us how to stand firm in the face of darkness and remain strong in the Lord as we put on the armor of God, taking up the equipment that God has given us while remembering that the battle is not ours but the Lord’s.
