Presbyter message

Dear People of God,

"For we are His workmanship , created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before hand, that we should walk in them" (Eph. 2:10).

 

Once a man visited another man who worked with wood. With his imaginative mind and skillful hands, the wood-worker take a piece of wood and make a beautiful product, he remarked, "God is like that", God takes a human being and makes a beautiful life. God is the Master designer. In fact Paul said, "We are His workmanship." Each believer is God's work of grace. Let us examine various aspects of God's work with human being.

 

1) God has an impossible product with which to work (Eph:2:1-3). Paul painted a pathetic picture of human beings. Such is the world today without God. Sin has caused terrible plight. The person without Christ is dead. A person without Christ is dominated by the world. Looking at the present state of human beings could cause us to be pessimistic and to conclude that people are helpless. God, however, can take an unholy person and make a beautiful product. He is the master designer.

 

2) God has an incredible power with which to design (Eph:2:4-6). Paul described God's incredible ability to change human beings. God is merciful to humanity,and He desires to help. The mercy of God prompts the power of God to save us. The power of God changes human beings.

 

3) God has an indomitable purpose to accomplish (Eph:2:7-10). After God worked on the impossible product with his incredible power, He has a purpose for the finished product. All designer's wants to show their products. God's product can be seen in a changed life. God wants His believers to do good works. Good works follow a true relationship with the Lord. When we place our faith in Christ; good works are inevitable results. He is the Master Designer.
