Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
You can be encouraged today by realizing the following truths that are present in this one power-packed verse:
1. YOU ARE GOD’S WORKMANSHIP
What an intoxicating thought, God is at work in your life! Don’t believe the enemy’s lie that
God does not care. Here Paul tells us that God is at work in us!
A. Having come to faith in Christ (v 8-9), God continues to give grace to grow you.(
B. You are God’s personal project so to speak. You have heavenly supervision over your life.
C. Since God is the Craftsman at work in your life, you are custom made by God. Exiting isn’t it?
Illus-In the world of fashion, people make a big deal about who designed their clothes, purses, shoes, etc. You are God designed and He does extended warranty work on you until you are called to be with Him. Lifetime warranty!
2. CHRIST IS THE BASIS OF FAVOR IN YOUR LIFE
You have become a join heir with Christ. It was not because of your good works (v9).
A. Because of what Jesus did, you can be saved.
B. Because of what Jesus did, you receive heaven’s benefits.
C. The flow of grace comes to you through Jesus mediation for you.
D. All that Father does for you is rooted in Christ Jesus.
E. Your creation and continued growth is in Christ Jesus.
F. When Father looks at you, He sees you with all the changes
provided by Jesus’ death and resurrection.
3. YOU ARE CREATED TO WORK PROPERLY
It is so important to see yourself the way God sees you–through Christ Jesus.
We tend to focus on our weaknesses and do not move from there into our place of strentgh–in Christ!
A. God is an ace mechanic. As the bumper sticker says,
"God don’t make no junk!"
B. We have under the hood what we need to move down the road of God’s will.
C. Tune ups are necessary as well as oil changes and occassional new tires. (sanctification)
D. God’s plans result in good works flowing from our lives. Not working to get saved
but working because we have been saved.
E. New cars are not meant to sit on the parking lot to be seen. They are created to be driven on the road.
Likewise, Christians have not been created to just sit on the pew in the church, they were created to
go into all the world sharing Christ and his love and teachings.
4. YOU DO HAVE A GOD PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE
Many people struggle with feeling no sense of purpose. God has a purpose for your life. A well thought through plan.
A. This plan was ordained ahead of time.
B. The Christian life manual is the New Testament
C. The best place to start is to study Jesus in the Gospels.
D. See how God worked through Jesus.
E. Realize Jesus said his disciples were to go do likewise.

this plan, then His hands position everything into place.
