The Ultimate Craftsman

In 1 Kings 6, there is substantial description about Solomon’s building project. It’s impressive that quarried stone was delivered to the building site and needed no further dressing to make them fit. That made for a fairly quiet job site.

But even more impressive is the skill-sets of the craftsmen who did the work. They had gifting and wisdom that were the best around from the laying of the foundation to its completion. Anyone who has built anything knows the critical importance of the finishing details.

Holy Spirit is the ultimate craftsman in God’s handiwork of transformation. He is never in a hurry, and works with precision and beauty. Paul says in Ephesians 2 that we are his workmanship. The Passion Translation says, “We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us.” With that perspective, we can trust that the work he has begun in us will not only be completed, but it will be a work of excellence.
