Topic: You Are Created For Good Works [Wednesday January 17th, 2018]
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 (KJV)
Good works are the things He pre-ordained before you were born. In other words, you are born for good works. So how dare you run yourself down and say because of your environment, you won’t tower above where you are. That is a lie from the pit of hell. Beloved, that environment will bow to you. Your city will bow to you. Your circumstance will bow to you because you are a new creation. What your body is telling you is not the truth. What your environment is telling you is not the truth. You are different. In Christ, you have what it takes.
If you think that the only reason you are born again is to go to Heaven, then the day you are born again you would have just gone to heaven. Why did God leave you here? It is because you are a game changer! You have what it takes to change the game. Stop looking down on yourself. You are loaded and dangerously dangerous against the powers of hell. Hallelujah! But often time we hear this word, we get excited in church and we go home and that is all. God showed me that the problem we are having as believers is that we do not understand how the kingdom operates.
Philemon 1:6 says “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.” The word effectual is talking about energy. Which means it gives you spiritual energy when you acknowledge the good things in you in Christ. In Christ, we know nothing bad but only good. Stop looking for bad things in your life. You are good and everything about you brings out good. When you stretch your hands, it is good. He says you are blessed in the fruits of your body. So how dare you say you are bad? It is an insult to Christ.
