“God has made us what we are, and in our union with Christ Jesus he has created us for a life of good deeds, which he has already prepared for us to do.” (Ephesians 2: 10, Good News Translation)
We are made by God and are His own children. Our awareness of this divine nature and the oneness that Jesus revealed and practiced, puts us on course to do good and to thrive.
You were built for a life of good deeds. This doesn’t mean we all play the same part and serve in the same way. Our fruitful life is uniquely ours and one that utilizes our gifts in the way God has already planned for us. We all have a calling, whether it looks like a traditional ministry or not. We were made of God’s own qualities—Truth, Life, Love—and this means we were crafted to be powerful expressions of His own intention.
Recognize that you were born to do amazing things with Love. And by that, I mean, with Love—with God Who is Love as the Source and intelligence and capacity. Christ Jesus proved that nothing could be done without God. But with Him, all things could be accomplished—things that changed the world as it was viewed at the time.
This is our example. As we realize our own connection with God and yield to His plan, we see a path revealed in work He has already prepared, along with a bounteous supply of His Love that we can enjoy immediately and use gratefully and generously each day.
