Ephesians 2:10 – Created In Christ

Ephesians 2-10 700x400
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God has before ordained
that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:10

Paul had just made the statement that you are saved by grace through faith. It wasn’t your works that saved you, but entirely God’s grace—His love and His provision through Jesus. When you receive that revelation through faith (simply believing that what God has said is true), you’re transformed.

In that transformation you learn that you are God’s workmanship. He’s created you as a new person; and as this new person in Christ, you’re to walk in the good works He has given. Before you were even born, God planned for you. He’s known your days, and He has good plans for you. It’s your choice to walk in them.

What are the good works? They were created in Christ Jesus through His finished work on the Cross. It is those good works that you can walk in because you are IN Christ Jesus. It’s allowing His life, His love, and His power to be seen in you. Walking in greater revelation and understanding of His Word and all that He has for you.

When you’re in Christ, you won’t want to walk in anything else but His good works. As you behold Jesus each day, learning from His Word, you’ll be transformed more and more into His image, into His likeness. YOU are His workmanship.

Continue to keep your focus on His finished work for you. Let it transform your heart and mind, then His love and blessings, His grace, His loving kindness and His mercy, will live IN you and you’ll walk in His good works. Exciting things are ahead.
