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
One of the common sights around a construction site is a sign boards. The construction firm announces their presence with these signs. Most of them are safety signs while others are for direction and ease of acces. One of the signs that catches my fancy is the warning ” Construction zone!, slow down”
God is undertaking life construction by Jesus Christ, I am God’s workmanship. Predetermined, created, called, justified and glorified. Many share the opinion that creation is the conclusion of the work of God. It’s always highlighted by the rest that God took at the end of his work. I am glad to let you know that God is at work until recently.
I am one of the projects under construction, are you?
“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called:and whom he called, them he also justified:and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”Romans 8:29-30.
Creation is not the conclusion but the continuation of God’s workmanship. So much work is still in progress, partnership with you is key to its execution. The plan, design and patterns may have been concluded but not yet in manifestation.
Life is a construction site, Jesus is the contractor, we are his workmanship. The call is enlistment into the program, design and plan to be under construction. It’s a submission not a subscription to be under construction. God is continuously working, Jesus is at work; get to work!
If there’s a sign that must be on everyone called for glorification, it would God’s construction site, keep off. Another sign would read, God at work, no delays and no deviations, no interference.
It’s time to get to work!
“But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.”John 5:17.
Thank you father for your workmanship through Christ Jesus. I am under construction, your hand is at work in me. I submit my life to be your workplace in Jesus name.
