Bible Verse of the Week: We Are God's Workmanship

"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10

This is another verse that never fails to speak to me in a different way each time I read it. We are His workmanship created for the good that God prepared for each one of us beforehand. There are a number of points in this verse, and I will state three of them. The first point is that we were crafted perfectly and uniquely by God in His own image. Second, the purpose of our creation was and is for us to do good works. Lastly, God planned our works and future before we came into being. With the three of these in mind, how could we do anything else besides putting our trust in God and striving to fulfill what He prepared for our lives? Each of us has something that God has specially purposed. I encourage you to seek what God prepared for your lives in order to fulfill those good works. ~Jesselyn
