Walk In Good Works




Focus: Ephesians 2:10 - KJV

10. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

 

Ephesians 2:6-13

 

Every believer is a work in progress in the hands of the Lord. The work started whilst we were still in the world drenched in the filth of sin. He employs evangelists and preachers to go after us to draw us out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once so drawn, we start getting fed with the sincere milk of the word to set us unto the path to walk away from the ways of sin. With time, we start to exhibit that which we have gained of Him through our salvation in Christ Jesus by showing forth good works for others to emulate. As His workmanship, we then become His showpieces unto the world, on how to be godly. God was so sure of His showpiece, Job, that He boasted of him to the devil. He spoke of David as a man after His own heart. Concerning Jesus Christ, in whom the believer got his new creation, He was clear to say “this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” That did not happen for many. The bottom line is the good works. Christ went about doing good and God is well pleased in Him. He laid down His life first to free us from the bondage of sin, and to release us unto His example of good works that we may walk in them.

 

Walking in good works is pivotal to the creation and maintenance of peace on earth. Since we have been saved by grace through faith, we are expected to show forth good works unto those that are yet to come to salvation in Christ Jesus. They are to observe us who had been like them in times past. Imagine a sex worker observing an old colleague doing now good works and glowing in the light and glory of the Lord. The tendency is for the sex worker to want to know what happened differently that caused her transformation. And if the same be wise, she will also be drawn to the light that saved her erstwhile colleague. Only a fool will see glaringly an inferno and plunge into it. Sin is inferno waiting to scorch the careless. Those who will however regret the scorching the most are those that have been shown the way of escape in good works but refuse to walk in them. It is therefore the mind of God that we all walk in the good works laid down for us by our Lord Jesus Christ and stay walking in it to the very end of our days. By so doing, we may just be able to win the world over unto Christ.

 

Father, we look up to you for the grace to do the kind of works Christ did and greater works also. Kindly bestow the same on us in Jesus’ name. Please help us to be good students of yours in doing good works, so that we may become your true showpieces in the name of Jesus Christ. Do not let us waste any opportunity to be shining lights in the sphere we operate, in Jesus’ name. Above all, when you come to collect your saints, let none of us be found wanting in good works in Jesus’ name.

 

SOLUTION: As good students of the Lord Jesus Christ, let us imbibe His teachings and walk in them in all that we do. It is important we do not lose focus of what we have learnt.
