For we are Godís workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Sometimes I sit at my desk at work and I look at the pile of stuff waiting for me to wade through and I feel overwhelmed. I never ends. I make my way to the bottom of one pile and another on appears to take its place. Of course laundry is the same. No sooner do I get the basket in my room emptied and all my clothes folded and put away then I walk by my kidsí room and see their basket overflowing onto the floor. Itís like running on a treadmill. You work really hard just to prevent yourself from going backwards.
I wonder, where are these good works that God prepared in advance for me to do? Will I ever make enough forward progress that Iíll be able to get off the treadmill and do the good works that I feel are inside me? Will there come a time when what I do every day actually matters?
But, what if there are good works for me to do right now, where I am, if Iíll just open my eyes to see them. What if my good works are integrity, honesty, compassion and perseverance? What if I need to change my perspective on what qualifies as a ďgood workĒ?
Thereís something to think about while Iím doing the laundry.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
