Know what you are!

"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them." - EPHESIANS 2:10

A rabbit came upon a rattlesnake in the woods. The rattlesnake hissed, “I know what you are! You have big ears, a fluffy tail, and a wiggly nose… You’re a rabbit! The rabbit replied, “I know what you are, too! You have beady eyes, a big mouth, a slick appearance, and diamonds all over you. You’re a televangelist!”

It’s important to know what you are. Our verse tells us we’re God’s workmanship, from a Greek word meaning “masterpiece.” Did you get that? You are – I am – God’s masterpiece created for good works. We are not saved by these works; we are saved by grace through faith. But God has saved us for a purpose – to serve Him and make Him known by good works done in His name. So jump off God’s easel, masterpiece, and get to work today.
