God's Handiwork

Ephesians 2:1-10
1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.




I am God's handiwork - ME.....Karrie. He has created me to do his work, am I?  Today, my prayer is to do his work, share his love, forgive, bless, comfort, serve, sacrifice, and live that others may find him, not only today but everyday.  His Grace is free for all.  "All of us"  have lived for the cravings of the flesh.   I see his handiwork often but not so much in myself.  Open my eyes LORD.

  5. I love that we are His handiwork, but we must also focus on the fact that we were created to do good works, that He prepared for us. I'm still working on following His lead to where He wants me to do those good works.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
