“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” – Ephesians 2:10
Reflect / Discuss
● If you were created to do good works, is much of your life actually spent doing that?
● In what ways has God been shaping and preparing your life for good works?
God has a purpose for each of our lives. He has shaped our skills, personalities, and experiences uniquely to accomplish good in the world. Yet many of us are still waiting for a sign or clarity on God’s calling, and it can leave us paralyzed. God has clearly prepared good works for you to do, and many of them are already right in front you. You were created to do good, so just do the good that is in front of you. That will ultimately prepare you to do even greater things in the future.
● What talents and skills do you have that you haven’t used for God’s work? Find a way to volunteer them through your church or a local nonprofit.
● Think of someone you know who has an immediate need that you can help with, and offer assistance.
