Eph. 2:10 Good Works

posted May 27, 2020, 8:07 AM by Jacob Boer

“For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.”

The Bible calls us to do good works which God has prepared for us to do: but what are these good works, are they simply anything that feels nice? The catechism tells us that these good works are works that come out of our relationship with Jesus, shaped by our attitude that’s shaped by Jesus. We do good works because we believe in Jesus and are asking ourselves, “What would Jesus do.” They are always in line with what Jesus taught, flowing out of love for God and our neighbours, and they are things that we do that cause people to acknowledge that there is a God; that our belief in Jesus is showing up in the things we do. So, at the beginning of each day, ask God to give you eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts filled with love to recognize and respond to the good works that are waiting for us to do.


Q. What are good works?

A. Only those which are done out of true faith, conform to God’s law, and are done for God’s glory; and not those based on our own opinion or human tradition.
