“Is This  not  the  Carpenter,  the  Son  of  Mary?” Mark  6:3

An unusual  Christmas  text,  perhaps,  but  it’s  an  interesting  theme  …this  thought   of  Jesus  as  a  carpenter.   Jesus,  learning  His  craft  from  Joseph  –  how  to  measure,  hammer,  nail,  plane,  saw   and  sand,  how  to  use  the  right  tools  to  produce  the  perfect  effect,  knowing  just   when  to  stop,  lest  He  spoil  His  work  of  art.  No  doubt  He  became  an  expert  at  His   occupation,  one  who  could  be  trusted  to  create  a  masterpiece. It’s  no  wonder  the  Apostle  Paul,  years  later,  should  remind  us  that  “We  are  His   workmanship…”  (Ephesians  2:10).    I  love  that!    He  is  the  one  who  is  making  us,   shaping  us,  moulding  us  –  and  He  knows  exactly  which  tools  to  use,  when  to   stop  and  start,  and  how  much  pressure  to  exert,  in  order  to  create  a   masterpiece.   He  is  skilled  at  His  occupation.    He  never  makes  a  mistake.    And  He  promises   to  Uinish  the  work  He  has  begun  in  us! So  I  am  asking  myself,  at  the  end  of  this  year  –  and  perhaps  you  could  ask   yourself  too  –  am  I  squirming  under  the  hammer,  wriggling  away  from  the   sandpaper,  struggling  against  the  painful  nails  and  the  seemingly  endless   bufUing?    Is  my  response,  “Lord,  what  are  you  doing  to  me?”  Or  am  I  yielding   myself  graciously  under  His  skilled  hands,  surrendered  to  the  process  that  will   make  me  the  work  of  art  He  has  designed  me  to  be? I  pray  our  Christmas  celebration  of  Jesus  will  be  Uilled  with  joy  and  a  tangible   sense  of  His  presence.  And  may  the  New  Year,  in  spite  of  so  much  heartache  and   devastation  all  around,  Uind  us  with  our  eyes  Uirmly  Uixed  on  Jesus,  and  our  lives   fully  surrendered  to  Him  –  the  One  who  is  the  author  and  Uinisher  of  our  faith.
