Boast In The Lord January 22nd, 2022

A Word From Jason Gibson

For by grace, you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.  For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.  Eph. 2:8-10

Not only has Christ saved us by His grace, but He includes us in being a part of His work in the world that He has prepared for us.  
One thing God has equipped me in over the years is biblical understanding and teaching.  He has blessed me with great teachers and mentors over the years and given me every advantage and opportunity to know the word.  
A couple of weeks ago, the Lord brought me and an orthodox Jewish woman together on a plane. He used everything I ever learned during our 4-hour gospel conversation. Unbeknownst to me the people in the rows surrounding us were listening.  God equipped me for a good work by His sovereignty, I just had to walk in it. 
Isn’t that our reality every day? Let’s walk in the work God prepared for us before we were born.

Lord, I know this world is not my home. I’m just passing through. Help me to use all my time, talent, and treasure to work for your glory each day. Direct me to walk in the work you have prepared for me and remind me that you are there with me always.
