Titus 3:8 (ESV): "8 The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people."The calling on the life of a believer is to good works. For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works that He prepared beforehand that we should walk in them (Eph 2:10). Don't forget what you were saved to!
Salvation came by way of good works, not yours, but Jesus'. He came to complete the law and walk in righteousness for us and faith in Him brings salvation to anyone who believes. We could never do good enough to work our way to God, but, after salvation enters our hearts we are called to go to work for God spreading love and hope through the Gospel message. You were saved to good works.
Are you walking in those good works today? Is your life a witness to the glory of Christ and is He being revealed through your interactions with people? He loves them so much and would do anything for them, so to must you. Put your hand to the plow and don't look back Christian. Jesus created good works for you to walk in, so walk in them! Don't hold back. There is a world that needs to experience them so they can believe. So what are you waiting for, get to work!
Father we thank You for the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. He has done great things for us so we can walk in newness of life. Help us to look for the works we were created to walk in, let us not miss them. Quicken our hearts even now, fill us with Your Spirit that we might be Your workmen for Your glory we pray in Jesus name, amen!
