For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Our scripture text answers the implied question of why are believers created, which is to do good works of our calling. All believers have a calling on his/her life and are to walk worthy of his or her calling.
Believers are called to serve God with our time, talent and tithe as well as serve those who are in need. Believers are to proclaim the gospel to all humanity of every generation and in every nation. Christ promised His return would be after every nation has had the gospel preached to them. There are some nations where the gospel is not being heard and the people are longing for to hear the gospel. That said, there is much work to do in spreading the gospel to those nations and its people so they too can become saved and spend eternity with God; it is God's desire that all be saved.
Are we working the work that God has called us to do? As a church, are we reaching the unchurched? As a church, are we the city that is set upon a hill calling lost souls to come ashore into the sweet sanctuary of God's salvation? As individual believers, are we being the shinning light of Christ for others to see?
As believers we are created in holiness to do good works.
