Good Works

30 09 2013


For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.  Ephesians 2:10 NLT




We were created to do good works.  Both you and I, and all of God’s children have a specific purpose to do things that are good and righteous.  This purpose is an assignment tailored by God for each of us that began at the beginning of time.  Just think….  Even before you were born a blueprint was in place for the masterpiece creation that is you.  Not just the color of your hair or the tone of your skin but the deep desire in your being to help others.  It is a gift and purpose from God that is ignited when we accept Christ in our lives.   You may have the capacity to lend a helping hand, to care for the sick, create services for the needy, to educate others or to serve the disabled.  It may be a gift of compassion for the despondent or teaching sustainable practices for stronger families and communities.  We are gifted and have a calling, pulling and tugging to accomplish good things for God’s people.  And it is a series of good works, one after another, that lasts for a life time.  We thank God for the gift of this purpose in our lives and commit to accomplish the tasks that we were so skillfully created to do.
