We Are God’s Handiwork!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:8-10, NIV)

As Christians we have already been saved by grace. There is absolutely nothing we can do to earn our salvation, except to believe – to have faith! Paul makes it very clear in his letter to the Ephesians that we are God’s handiwork, created to serve Christ Jesus! God has prepared each of us, in advance, to do good works! Very simply, we are to use our positions in life – wherever we are – to bring “light” into the darkness. We are to live our lives in a way that will bring honor and glory to Christ Jesus. We are to love each other and respect everything that has been created by our Father! We are to live as Jesus lived!

Enjoy your Tuesday, “Working for Christ”!
