For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV)
Hey you! Yea you! You who have been saved by the grace of God! You wretched sinner! You were saved from your evil ways because of God’s will; because of God’s love for you! And He created you in advance for His purpose! For Good works that you should walk in them! Now obey Your God, obey Your Father in Heaven and stop walking in your old ways! You are a new creation in Christ! Now act like it!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (II Corinthians 5:17 NKJV)
You are born again, you are renewed and regenerated! Ask The Lord to fill you afresh with His Holy Spirit and walk in that spirit! Do unto others as you would expect them to do to you! love your neighbor as yourself and abstain from the things of the past; shine the Light that our Lord and Savior presented to you at the time of your death to self, your time of trust and faith in Him!
You are a Christian, a chosen generation, you have been given blessing upon blessing, now relay those blessings to those around you! Thank God today and everyday for His good works! Ask Him to fill your heart and soul with his love so you can give that love to others!
Cry out! Lord God, Lord Jesus, fill me afresh! Fill me up from head to toe, give me strength and provision for the day. Protect me from the enemy and this god forsaken world. Help me to shine Your light and be a good example to those who need saving, those who need your will! Lord I thank you for all that you do! You are awesome and mighty! You are the one I need! And it is in Your son’s name I pray, amen!
