“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].” Ephesians 2:10 AMPWhen I first wrote this my wife had just given birth to my baby boy, Matteo Jonathan Sheffey. He was born with love and made for a purpose. On the day that he gives his life to Christ and determines to live in Him, my son will become a new thing. We celebrate his birthday now, but on that day the angels will join in the celebration as he will have been re-born, recreated.
God through the work of the Holy Spirit, enters into us and refashions us from the inside out.
He does not remodel; he does not adjust; he RECREATES!!
We are not re-created for recreation but for work, for His good works. Rest in who you are in Jesus, but put your new you to work for the kingdom.
God has a plan for YOU, now work it out!
