Ephesians 2:10 – Who Are You?

Who are you?

Maybe you’re a mom or a dad. Maybe you’re married, or maybe you’re single, divorced, remarried, or widowed. Maybe you have a big, fancy job.  But maybe you work from home instead.

There are a lot of titles we can use to describe who we are.

But who are we really?

“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience-among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ- by grace you have been saved- and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not 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, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:1-10

We wear many hats, we are many things to many people.  And none so important as this one:

“We are His workmanship.”

God created us.

We are HIS.

Furthermore, he saved and redeemed us. He made us alive when we were dead in our sin. And this is all God. There is nothing we have done or ever could do on our own to redeem ourselves. If you accept the sacrifice of Jesus and make God Lord over your life, giving your all to him daily and giving yourself up to be transformed and renewed into the image of Christ, then you are a child of the King, saved from sin, grafted into His family.

So who are you, really?
