Everyone is uniquely shaped for the purpose of God. We must embrace the whole masterpiece of how each person has been made. – Based on Ephesians 2:10
God uniquely shaped every person so they can live out their created purpose in a powerful way. He calls this design a masterpiece—His workmanship. The spiritual gifts, passions, abilities, personalities, and experiences He has put in us shape us uniquely and wonderfully to live out His purpose in the world. Our shape is not me-centred but God-centred, and given for His glory to fulfil His mission through us. As Jesus followers, we choose to surrender our desire to use our shape for our own dreams and ambitions, choosing instead to live it all out fully for His glory. As we do this we are the most brilliant reflection of His glory in the Universe.
Therefore, all strategies, models and systems should champion the God-given shape of every believer.
The Lausanne Commitment of 2011 references this idea in multiple places—here it relates to embracing the Arts:
We possess the gift of creativity because we bear the image of God. Art in its many forms is an integral part of what we do as humans and can reflect something of the beauty and truth of God. Artists at their best are truthtellers and so the arts constitute one important way in which we can speak the truth of the gospel. Drama, dance, story, music and visual image can be expressions both of the reality of our brokenness, and of the hope that is centred in the gospel that all things will be made new. In the world of mission, the arts are an untapped resource. We actively encourage greater Christian involvement in the arts (The Cape Town Commitment: 2011 Lausanne Part II / 5).
