“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10, NIV)
You’ve heard the expression: “Your work is cut-out for you.”
It is a good thing to have one’s work clearly defined and waiting to be accomplished. As disciples of Jesus — “God’s handiwork” — our work is cut-out, and waiting, for us from all of the other missions and tasks in the world that wait to be taken-up.
When we were made new in Christ we became an instrument for good works. Don’t allow yourself to become a tool for anything less.
How do we know whether the task before us is of God? Make it your ambition to walk with God in, and through, every circumstance. “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:6) – Luther
