In our text for today, the apostle Paul calls the followers of Jesus a piece of work, or pieces of work. In Ephesians 2, Paul seems to put this whole idiomatic discussion into perspective by comparing the relative value of the product to the One who is doing the making. It’s a “before and after” look at human beings. Before putting our faith in Christ, we are the “piece work” of “the ruler of the power of the air.” After Jesus begins working in our lives we are God’s “workmanship,” masterpieces made to show God’s glory.
