Eph 2:8-10  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Eph 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

An electrical appliance in our home is made to help us in our living. Each appliance is made for a specific task. But all appliance runs from the same source ‘Electricity’. If there is no electricity, it will be a waste lying there. Likewise we are all made for good works in specific areas in the body of Jesus Christ by connecting to our Head who is the source of all things. If we are not connected to Him, then we are of no use to anybody. If we are connected in Him, then through Him and the power that flows through Him we can do many works regarding the things of God. We can be a useful vessel for many. The power from the Head of the church will flow through us and deliver people. As Paul says, “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors”, the same way we represent our Lord; in Him and through Him all things are possible to those who believe and yield themselves to the headship. His word is from everlasting to everlasting. His power is immeasurable. In our life time, we are plugged into this everlasting Truth and power to be a vessel in the hands of our Creator. Once our time on this earth is done, and when we wake up from sleep, we would be reigning with Christ transformed into His likeness. This is the glorious hope we have and this is our purpose of our life in this earth. We are made to manifest His goodness to this world and to live a victorious life in Christ Jesus. Let us pray that we understand how we are made and the purpose of our born again nature and how to conduct ourselves in world to be an overcomer like our Lord. Amen.
