Creati in Christo Iesu (Eph. 2:10)

A song from Indonesia entitled, “ Aku Bukan Boneka”  (I am not A Doll) has gone viral on You-tube in the last few days. Everyone around me, even my students, shared this video too. I think it is going viral because the song is commercial (easy to sing) and the singer is entertaining.

This song made me think more about the meaning of it. So, this verse popped up “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”. We knew that we were created by God’s hands as stated in Gen. 1:27 with His image (Imago Dei). God created us not like a robot or a doll as depicted in this song to be alike and do the same thing. God created us with wellbeing so we can praise the Lord sincerely.

Adam and Eve fell because they had been tempted by the Evil. As a result, we inherit this sinful nature and become a doll of evil. But praise the Lord, He sent His mighty Son to save us all by sacrificing Himself on that cross. So we are now not a robot or a doll of the evil, but precious things and become the apple of His eyes (Deut. 32:10). Praise the Lord for that.

Sometimes, these days, we are not fully aware of the trick of evil and become his doll again. We oftentimes don’t realize that evil has taken control of us. Let us keep our eyes on the Lord (Ps. 16:8) and set our mind to Him by filling our mind with reading the scriptures daily and thinking of Him only. So, He will always be our guide and set us free from evil. May God Bless us all. Amen.
