For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
It is amazing to study how the cells in the body all work together to survive as an organism. Insects work in hives all working in unison. Systems throughout the universe are in motion working in harmony. But then there is mankind. How dysfunctional can we get? It is every person for their own self. This is not God’s desire. God created humans to exist in a system that has each of us looking out for the interests of others. He created love to be our model of coexistence. As Christians, God created us in Christ to do good works. The author of Hebrews writes, “And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” And the world needs love in action. There are so many weary, hurting, broken, saddened, terrified people all around us. Every family has a story. So today volunteer. Just show up. Let God know that you will be willing to help someone and then be available. He will lead you. He will guide you to someone who needs your help. And you will be blessed, for there is nothing better than doing what you were created to do. After all, you have been called by God Himself to do good works, which He prepared in advance for you to do!
Lord, I know that You have created me to do good. I know that it is Your desire, yet I need You to guide me. Direct me to someone who needs what I have. Someone who will benefit from the way you have wired me. Guide me, then empower me to do the good that You have prepared in advance for me to do. In Jesus’ name.
