Week 86 Bible Reading: Ephesians 2:1–10

The Fingerprint Of God

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. - Ephesians 2:10

Lygon Stevens loved to climb mountains with her brother Nick. They were experienced climbers and both had reached the top of Alaska’s Denali, the highest point in North America. But in January 2008, they were swept off a Colorado mountain by an avalanche, injuring Nick and tragically taking the life of twenty-year-old Lygon.

When Nick later discovered his sister’s journal, he was comforted by what it said. She wrote: “I am a work of art, signed by God. But He’s not done; in fact, He has just begun. . . . I have on me the fingerprint of God. . . . I have a job to do in this life that no other can do.”

Through the memory of her life and her journal she inspires and challenges those she left behind.

Made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26), each of us is a “work of art, signed by God.” The apostle Paul says, “We are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

God made us for a purpose. Can you think of what He wants you to do for Him today at school or when you are with your friends?

Fun Fact

The peak of Denali, which is in south central Alaska, is 20,310 feet above sea level.

Just You and God

“Here I am, Lord. Help me to think of what I can do today to let people know how important you are to me.”
