Paul said believers "are God's workmanship." Eph 2:10 It seems strange to think of God laboring to produce a Christian. It involves the incarnation of God's Son Gal 4:4 His life of ministry as God's Messiah, His sacrificial death and resurrection, and the ministry of the Holy Spirit in conviction and regeneration, the Triune Godhead-Father-Son and Holy Spirit all participate in the making of a Christian. We were created in Christ Jesus to do good works. These are not always the things that we consider good works, but works God so designates to us. As we are controlled by the Spirit day by day, we will do the good works that He prepared. Eph 2:10
As a believer are you thankful that God has made you? Do you praise Him for His grace in including you in His eternal plan of salvation? Are you achieving God's design for you? Are you doing the good works He has prepared for you?
