Verse of the Day - Why are we here???

10 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)

What is our Purpose???

  • We are His Workmanship - we were Created in Christ Jesus.  We are HIS!
  • We are Created for good works.  We were not made - just for nothing.  We are to be doing good works!
  • Prepared Beforehand.  God had a plan - even before we were born!
  • We should walk in our good works.  This should be our way of life!

God created us for a purpose -we are planned - we are wanted - we are HIS!!!  We are a good creation - after God created man (Genesis) HE said "It was VERY good"!!!

We are to be doing good works - they should be a part of our lifestyle, not just an afterthought.  These works do NOT get us to heaven though.... 

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

But these good works we should be doing in Praise of our Creator!!!

 

We do have a purpose!!!

And his plan for us was made beforehand...how comforting to know we should just let his plan unfold.
