This week Pastor Chris continues in the study of the book of Ephesians (Pt.4)
Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV)
10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
1) Good works can only be done in Christ, In the sense that they are Holy Good.
A fully good work is exemplified when the world was created and God said
"It is Good"
2) God has before ordained or preordained that we should walk in good works.
The term "before ordained" in scripture is a crucial term to understand as by its misunderstanding many are perplexed.
1 Tim 2:3 (NKJV)
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
1 Tim 2:4 (NKJV)
4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
