For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10 ESV
Do you know God has a mission for you today? He has one for me, too.
We are his workmanship—which means he saves us only through his power. This also means we are being changed to become more like Jesus through his power, as well (Rom 8:29).
So, what kind of people do you think God is molding?
You and I have God-ordained works waiting for us to walk in today.
Notice the balance between two words: work and walk.
We’re not being called to work, or perform, this mission out of our own power… We’re called to walk in them.
In today’s verse we learn that God works in us that he might work through us.
Through these words of Paul, God is making a promise to us. That if we watch, listen to Holy Spirit, and follow his leading, God will accomplish his mission through us.
Do you desire to be used by God to build his Kingdom? Then today is your day—just like everyday is. There are works prepared for you to walk in.
Will you watch and be obedient to walk in them, today?
