“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
You are like no one else in this world—a living work of art created anew in Jesus Christ with special high-grade wiring! At Salvation, God claimed you for Himself and empowered you to live by the Power of the Holy Spirit. This daily devotional celebrates your uniqueness—a worker approved by God.
Today’s Scripture passage reveals that Christians are products of God’s craftsmanship! With the utmost skill, He creates each of us for good works; but our efforts and deeds are worthless unless performed in the Power of The Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ.
God prepared our labors ahead of time. Once we become aware of them, we can complete our tasks successfully, with no added sorrow, by allowing Christ to accomplish them through us. In this way, we can “walk in them.”
When we received salvation, God completely replaced our old wiring! Now, we think and act differently, as the Holy Spirit rewires our minds and hearts through reading, studying, and appropriating God’s Word (Romans 12:1-2). We depend on the Father, as Jesus did when He lived on earth. We become living examples of God’s Workmanship!
How has God’s rewiring of you shaped your new life?
Heavenly Father, I am thankful to be a product of Your Workmanship! Continue to show me how to live the transformed life You prepared for me before the foundation of the world.
