Walk in Good Works

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- December 4, 2012

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 NASB

Children of God are a work of God. It is His workmanship in Christ that creates good works through His followers. Thus, the Lord has prepared for believers—even before they believe— behaviors that bring glory to Him. In God’s infinite wisdom He knew faith would unlock the desire to serve on His behalf, so He wove into the heart of Christians creative ways to give back. Those who walk in good works reflect the ready work of God.

Yes, our walk of faith equals a walk in good works. This is why we look for ways in our workplace to give good gifts to our co-workers. Perhaps someone on the job needs help paying their insurance deductible for a medical procedure. We can be a catalyst for Christ to help raise the cash and bless them in their time of need. A good commercial for Christianity is to care about real-time concerns. Our good works bring glory to God’s work.

“When they see among them their children, the work of my hands, they will keep my name holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel.” Isaiah 29:23

A walk in good works means you look for ways to bless another human being every day. Maybe it is a casual conversation with a stranger that celebrates their being a cancer survivor. Your daily walk of works exercises your faith and keeps you from becoming spiritually overweight. Unapplied biblical knowledge affects your soul like too many carbohydrates slows your body— it’s response is sluggish and insensitive to immediate needs. Yes, a healthy spiritual heart results from regular faith workouts with good works. Love does!

Therefore, pray and ask the Lord to reveal His good works for you, ones that He has already prepared before you were born. Works produced in your own strength are draining, but works aligned with your heavenly Father’s designed activities just for you—give life, energy and enjoyment. Your walk in good works is a compelling apologetic for Christ!

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 NKJV

Prayer: Heavenly Father, show me the works you have prepared for me to bless others.

    I’m the co-founder of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently planning to grow my wholesale side of business. It would be great if someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I considered that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anybody could recommend a reliable web-site where I can buy Vape Shop B2B Leads I am currently considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most ideal choice and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
