Good Works! Seriously!

Have you ever made anything and been truly pleased and satisfied with your production? Don’t tune me out because you are not an artist…because neither am I. To my artist friends, however; my hat is off to you for your amazing works of art in painting or crafts.

I have made a few items, such as a decoupage doll and some ceramics, and I felt pretty good about making them. But my masterpieces often come in the form of pies or bread. When the meringue stands high and the rolls are deliciously baking and wafting their aroma, I am satisfied that I have accomplished something significant and of pleasure to others.

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

We are His masterpieces and He created us in Christ Jesus to do good works. How satisfying and what pleasure it must bring our Father when we do what we were prepared to do before He even set us on this earth! When we walk in deeds of love - doing good works - His beauty shows through us. His work of art bringing glory to Him!

May He use us as we were intended today. And there you go!
