“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
God lavished His grace on us through the work of Jesus Christ. When we were dead in our sins He chose to create the opportunity for us to have new life. There was nothing we could do to earn salvation ourselves, but God loved us anyway. Jesus didn’t just come to save us and go on about His business though. Before salvation we couldn’t work to get to God. Now we are forever indebted to Him. We should want to work to please Him.
If you have been born again, then you are God’s workmanship. You are God’s handiwork. The Lord has done so much to restore a relationship with you. There are many more things He wants to do. God wants to fulfill His glorious plans through you! You should want that for your life. Salvation is only the beginning of the good work that Christ wants to complete in you. If you appreciate God’s grace, then live like it.
