[The Glory Unveiled]
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 )
Before a manufacturer begins his/her design process, they are guided by a purpose that the product should serve. And it is this purpose in the mind of the manufacturer that guides the design process and all the individual little details and designs. So that by reason of the purpose of the product in the mind of the designer, before the product is finalized, it is already fully functional and existing in the mind of the designer. Likewise, in Christ Jesus, we were also created to fulfill a particular purpose. And even before we became conscious, God had a well crafted plan for the fulfillment of that purpose. And by reason of this foreknowledge, God knows our end before He created us to fit that purpose. God told Jeremiah, “before you were a clot of blood in your mother’s womb, I knew you.” God was not being idiomatic when He said these things because He is the creator and before He created Jeremiah or anyone of us, He had in mind through Christ, what we should do. This also supposes that we cannot fulfill our purposes independent of God. The surest and most genuine way into purpose is through the door of Christ Jesus. We are God’s handiwork (creation, craft) created with destiny (good works) to bring glory to God. Are you trying to find out what it is that you were created for? Find out from the manufacturer, God. You have a unique purpose, discover it in prayer and the study of the word.
Prayer_Bead: Father, Creator, Lord and sustainer of all things, thank you for the grace to come into the world. Unveil it to me, your purpose for my life, that I may live a life of destiny.
