Good work...

The Bible is a book that takes a great amount of devoted time to read. There are 31,240 verses in the Bible, and I am amazed at how there are weeks where I hear one verse or a paragraph of verses repeated. Last week the KidPoint devotional sheet that came home had Ephesians 2:10 on the first day of the week. The verse really made me think so I wrote it out on an index card and put it on the frig. Then I heard the verse quoted by Jean Duerr when she spoke for Real Women. Lastly, tonight I am sharing this verse with you because it is the next section of Ephesians. So Ephesians 2:10 say, "For we are God's materpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." I love this verse because it tells us we are God's materpiece. We aren't just complete or ok. We are God's best work. The verse goes on to say that we were created by God to do good things. So on those days we struggle wondering if we have accomplished anything...did we do good work? The day where we failed...did we do a good work? The day we didn't finish our work...did we do good work? God created us as His materpiece to do good work. Enjoy doing your good work that God planned for you to do. It won't be hard to figure out...just do the good God brings for you to do.
