I would like to simply encourage you with the best news you can possibly hear today. The Apostle Paul wrote:
“By grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2: 8-10).
Stop for a second, reread that, and let it soak in….
Today, you can put your faith in Jesus Christ. By his free gift (grace) of dying on the cross for us, we can now step into our calling of doing good works for Him. On top of that, the good works we do are not actually ours because we are His workmanship. Anything we can do is only possible because of the work He has already done and continues to do in us.
This good news is for you. Rest in the knowledge that Jesus Christ is still molding you into the person He created and called you to be.
Love to all,
“He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).
