Good Morning church,
This is a glorious morning! We are having a celebration service at Joy Baptist Church. Three are going to be baptized! A father and his daughter and a grandfather will baptize his grandson! WOW! It is all for the glory of our father and Lord Jesus Christ who created us for this very purpose!
You see church God has loved us, made us, and raised us up with him in order that we may DO what we were created to do! We are his masterpiece, specifically his workmanship, literally his “work.” Created to accomplish a specific task. We are his special tools!
Eph. 2:10 is our last verse this morning in our GOSPEL series as we finish up on the GOSPEL essentials. L—Life Transformation. Every born-again believer bought by the blood of Jesus Christ has been transformed into a pristine work of engineering beauty! You are the “crescent wrench” of the Gospel Advancement! Completely adjustable in order to accomplish the task of reaching the world so that every tongue, tribe, and nation will hear the name of Jesus!
I can’t help but be overwhelmed that our little country church is really buying into this Gospel Advancement Purpose! We are walking the walk of transformed lives. This is evident of the Celebration service that we are having this morning. Seven kids were saved during VBS a few weeks ago. One of our men were saved just last week in Church. Yesterday we had a block party where everyone in the neighborhood came through and we were able to invite them to church and have Gospel conversations! Church this is what a transformed life looks like!
You do not want to miss this morning! Eph. 2:10 is our text “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” I am going to lay out three elements this morning- We are a great work of God created for a specific purpose therefore we should be doing work!
