Sunday Musings | Not OF Works But FOR Works

We are given the gift of salvation through faith, not because of the things we do. Salvation is free for anyone who genuinely believes in Jesus Christ, confesses that He is the Lord, and accepts His gift of salvation. There is nothing we can do to earn salvation - it is NOT of works as we see in Ephesians 2:8-10:

For by grace you have been saved through faith,
and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone should boast.
For we are His workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand
that we should walk in them.

However, we are saved for works, good works, which the Lord has prepared for us to do. God has already developed works for us to do as His children. As we seek Him and His will, He will guide us and show us those works that He has prepared for us. This is not something that we have to do, it's something that we'll want to do as we draw closer to Him and remember His free gift of salvation.

What are the good works the Lord has prepared for you to do?

  1. I have just discovered a new podcast that I've been listening to while out walking. It's called the Bible in a Year. Every day, there's a reading and then a bit of an explanation. Each episode is only about 20-30 minutes long. So far, it's been very interesting. Thanks for your uplifting posts too!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
