Ephesians 2:10 NIV
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good sworks, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Christians were created by GOD in CHRIST to be His holy people. We are spiritual beings with living souls. We were made that way by God, like the potter making a vessel for his own use. God’s handiwork is all over our lives – He has made us for Himself, to do His good works – not our own, for we have none.. The works for God were planned by God and our lives are set up, so that we do them, according to His will and for His glory…
There is no higher calling than this. God’s people are directly linked to Himself and we walk in His ways because they were set down for us before time began. Just as God chose His people, so He also ordains their lives and the spiritual calling that He has planned for them.
Our response is to trust and obey. We can do so with confidence, for God is Holy and can never lead us the wrong way.
To find this Holy calling is a place of peace and joy for the Christian. It is a place of assurance and where faith only grows and doubt is dealt with as we lay hold on the promises of God.
I am God’s handiwork- what an exalted privilege and ongoing state of the growing fruits of the Spirit.
