Saved For Good Works

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do. EPHESIANS 2:10, CSB 

Saved For Good Works

We are not saved by our good works—since Jesus’ atonement was sufficient for our redemption—but we are saved for good works. Each day we wake up, there are good deeds God has for us to do. He knows what they are, and we get the privilege of discovering them as we engage life. One aspect of these good deeds is our faithfulness to share the good news of Jesus where we live, work and play. Don’t get so busy in your everyday life that you forget the intentionality it takes to share Christ’s love with others. Our evangelism does not make God love us any more than He already does in Christ, but perhaps we will discover more of God’s love for us and those around us as we engage our one.

The last thing Jesus said to His disciples before He ascended to heaven was to go and make disciples. He sent the disciples out to the ends of the earth to spread His good news and lead others to Him. Those new believers could then go and make disciples. This is the most important job He has for us, and with the condition of the world today, we should all be working with a sense of urgency.

Pray God would reveal to you the good works He has for you to walk in today.  

He told them, “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. 
Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his 
harvest. LUKE 10:2, CSB
