As we begin this new year, we need to remind ourselves that we are God’s masterpiece. He created us in His own image (Genesis 1:27). He is reborn in our hearts and created us anew. He lives in us (Romans 8:10). We are His children. 2 Corinthians 6:18 says And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.
For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Since God lives in us and we are His children, we need to do good things. Not because, by doing good we can be saved. We are saved by His grace. That’s His gift to all of us (Ephesians 2:8).
Let’s begin doing good works because He lives in us. Ephesians 6:9 says, so let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up.
When unbelievers look at children of God, they see His image coming through in us. We are like a window where they can see Jesus and want to come to Him. By this, we can fulfill His ultimate goal of winning souls for Him.
