We Are His Workmanship

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” – Eph. 2:10

So many great truths in one verse:

We are His “workmanship,” which literally means “a thing made”… not evolved.

“Created in Christ Jesus” – “in Christ” might be Paul’s favorite expression; that’s your true identity.

“for” good works = not saved “by” good works, but to do good works.

God prepared these good works beforehand (in eternity past): God is sovereign over every single little thing… ever. [God’s part]

… so we might walk in them; there’s Man’s responsibility. [Man’s part]

And that’s just scratching the surface.
