WE ARE GOD’S WORKMANSHIP
-Ephesians 2:10 states, … For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God
has before ordained that we should walk in them …
-Let us grasp this great truth, for this is the purpose and plan of God. This truth is the theme of the entire
Bible. Ephesians 2:10 is in harmony with Genesis 1:26, which states, … And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after
Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and
over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth …
-This is the very reason that God subjected the creation to vanity, not willingly. As a result of this, God
is the potter, and we are His clay. WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP! He lowered us into this realm that He might work on us, causing
us to learn of Him. The result is … OUR LATTER END WILL BE GREATER THAN OUR FORMER!
-The word “workmanship” means handiwork. You must see yourself as the handiwork of God. HE IS WORKING
ON YOU AND IT IS A PROCESS! It is called salvation. Why is He working on you? So that you might become like Him. For
what? So that you might have dominion. For what? TO SET THE CREATION FREE! For what? So that God will become ALL IN ALL! This
is the end goal of God … THAT HE MAY BE ALL IN ALL ( 1st Corinthians 15:22-28 ).
-Most Christians are involved in “trying to do a work for God” rather than realizing that they are
God’s workmanship. You must come to the sobering fact that you cannot do a work for God! There is nothing that
we can do for Him. HE HAS ALREADY ESTABLISHED HIS PLAN OF THE AGES. WE MUST GET IN WHAT HE IS DOING! Get in the flow of what
God is doing, which is to allow Him to work on you, changing your nature from Adam to Christ. Many people are so busy trying
to work for God, looking for a position in “full-time ministry”, that they are not even walking with God.
Read the story of Cain and Abel. Cain offered God the work of his hands rather than letting God work on him. The Kingdom of
God is not what work that you have accomplished for Him, but rather, it is allowing Him to work His righteousness, peace,
and joy into your heart and life. Remember … As the clay is in the potter’s hand, …
-SO ARE WE IN HIS HAND!-
