Prepared Before

Ephesians 2:10. For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.

There are 4 things in this verse that excite me. First, we are the workmanship of God. That means we have been made exactly as God wants. When God finished making creation He said, “It is good.” That means the way I’m made is good. Second I was created on Christ Jesus. Sin separated me from Him but He resolved that by spilling His blood to cover my sin some can be back in Him. Third I was created in Jesus for good works. This means along with Jesus I have a continuing part in God’s creation. Through Jesus I get to do something good. Lastly God prepares the good He will do through me before He created me. All I need do is listen, walk in obedience and live in and through Him as He lives in and through me. No stress, no worries just love and obedience.
