Daily Devotion: Created For His Workmanship

Bible Reading: Ephesians 2:1-10

Key Verse: Verse 10 -"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Key Words: we are his workmanship

Everybody has in their homes manufactured products. Appliances such as a toaster, refrigerator, stove, microwave, or an electric can opener are commonly found in people’s homes and each of those has a different workmanship. They are designed differently. They have different parts that make them operate. Each one has its own unique reason for being. Now, if that appliance operates outside of its reason for being there, we have a problem. If you want to cook things in the refrigerator and freeze things in the stove, you are going to have a difficult situation in the home because that’s not what the workmanship is for. The workmanship is used for whatever the creator designed it to do. The toaster does not tell the creator what it’s going to do today. The stove does not tell the creator what it’s going to do today. It is the creator that dictates to the appliance the reason why the appliance exists. The appliance does whatever it’s been designed to do.

In the same way, we are God’s creation and He dictates to us why we exist and can tell us what we are designed to do. He gives us our purpose. If we operate outside of our reason for being, that’s when we experience problems. Walking in the purpose God designed for us is how we fulfill our unique reason for being.

What to do:
✞ Not fulfilling God’s purpose for our life leaves us unfulfilled.
