CREATED UPON GOOD WORKS
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them" (Eph. 2:10, NKJ).
Our Heavenly Father chose us to be in Christ
before the foundation of the world (Eph. 1:4). The Father's eternal plan was
based on His eternal Son being the creative source of all eternal things.
The whole eternal plan revolves around the Father and
the Son. The
Father chose to have sons, that He would
The Father has
given to each of us a choice to make. We either choose to have a
relationship and a love fellowship with Him, or we choose not to have one.
Even while we were continually dead in our trespasses,

Our Father chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world (Eph. 1:4), and placed Christ in us at our Spirit birthing (I Pet. 1:23; Col. 1:27), that we live by the life of Christ in us (Gal. 2:20). All good works were also once then created in Christ Jesus. God once then prepared these good works beforehand that we might walk in them. The Father placed Christ in us to live in us and express everything that He prepared beforehand in Christ (Gal. 2:20). Only Christ living and expressing Himself in and through us as us is genuine good works (I Thess. 5:24). All else, is simply mocking flesh. We were created in Christ Jesus upon the good works of our Father! (Eph. 2:10). V
