For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God Ephesians 2:8 NET
Beloved, the gospel of grace makes us confident in our daddy God; that He will do what He has promised. Many times, whenever this verse is read, the term “good work” is deemed to mean God’s blessings or other good things that proceed from our daddy God. Yes, all good and perfect gifts come from our Abba Father and no good thing will He withhold from us, His beloved kids.
But Paul was speaking about something else, “a good work”. Our Lord Jesus was asked by His disciples, “what shall we do, that we might work the works of God?” This was the Master’s reply: “This is the work of God, that you believe on Him whom He sent” (John 6:28-29). Beloved God is more interested in your believing; the key to having all things the kingdom of our daddy God has to offer, is by believing. And who you believe, will determine how you live and what you enjoy in life.
Grace is not just the unmerited and undeserved favour of God or divine influence on the heart; it’s a person. Grace is Jesus. The works of our daddy God is that you believe more on Grace; believing His grace makes your life flourish beautifully. Do you want to do the works of God? Believe Grace.
Prayer: My Daddy God, thank You for the work that You began in me. I am confident that it will flourish till the end in Jesus Name.
