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 NKJV
God created you in His image and likeness. He created you to be like Him in some ways. The Lord created you to live in an eternal loving relationship with Him!
There is great mystery in God’s revelation to mankind. The bible teaches truths that may seem contradictory to each other. They are not.
Our words carry the power to bless and to curse but we do not have creative power. God created us to be like Him and yet we are born with a sinful nature.
One day each of us will die a physical death but Jesus defeated the power of sin and death. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God but we can still be declared righteous through faith in Jesus Christ!
God was incredibly pleased when He created you!
The Lord created you to be an extension of His authority. He created you to represent Him on the earth. Jesus created you to love His people. God did not create you because He was bored and lonely. The Lord has a plan and a purpose for your life!
Our mission as Christians is to know Jesus Christ and make Him Known to the world!
The work God prepared for us before the foundations of the world starts with knowing Him.
Is Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior? Do you know Him?
God is Omnipresent (everywhere at once), He is Omnipotent (all powerful), He is Omniscient (knows all things). The perfect, ever present, all powerful and all-knowing God loves you with an everlasting love!
Do you love Him?
Today God is saying, “You are mine; I am your God. You are My child. Let the light of My love shine before all the world! “I am with you! Go in My name! Do all that I created you to accomplish for My glory and to reveal My love to My people!”
We live in a world reeking of sin and death. You will receive no encouragement or confirmation of your faith from the current world system. Jesus will uphold you and empower you to complete the work He created you to accomplish in Him and for Him!
Lean on Jesus as you go out into the world to do the good works your Heavenly Father created you to accomplish for the glory of God! Jesus will uphold you with His righteous right hand! The forces of darkness will not prevail against the servants of Almighty God!
