8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 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 is a beautiful passage about the wonderful salvation that believers have in Christ. Verse 10 reads: “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” The word “workmanship” (Greek: poiema) can also be translated “masterpiece.” Christians are God’s masterpiece because we are a new creation in Christ. God has taken great care in preparing us to reflect his divine character and action. He expects us do the things which bring glory and honor to him and that advance his purposes in the earth. It is a humbling reality that God seeks to reproduce himself in us. Are you ready to become his agent of salvation? Enjoy this inspiring and encouraging word.
