For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).
We are sinful and don't deserve anything but judgment at God's hand. If He gave us what we deserve, we would all end up in hell. Yet, we receive His grace, His mercy, His love. His grace is designed for us to produce good works. It is a marvelous manifestation of God's ability. By His grace, He has prepared us in advance to result in good works: kindness, love, mercy, compassion, helping one another, meeting one another's needs.
Do we have any idea how many good works God has prepared for us? Let us walk in faith and trust in Christ to step into them.
Thank You, Father, that You have prepared beforehand good works for me to walk in. Grant that I might see these opportunities and take full advantage of them in the power of your Spirit.
