Welcome to Season 1 Episode 37 of the Your Church Matters podcast.  In this episode, I shared a recording of a sermon I preached in the First Baptist Church of Decatur, TX on August 16, 2015.

 

 

The message was based on Ephesians 2:1-10, with special emphasis on verse 10: For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

Points to Ponder:

  • Workmanship (Greek-poema) = poem/work of art/masterpiece
  • We ARE His workmanship = current reality
  • We are HIS workmanship = God’s unique involvement
  • Created in Christ Jesus = brought from death into life (v. 1-9)
  • For good works, which God prepared beforehand = His sovereign purpose and unique work
  • That we would walk in them = lifestyle/patterns/habits
  • WE are His WORKMANSHIP (not workmanships) = His masterpiece is US corporately, not just individual Christ-followers or even individual congregations … the people of God in the world
