Re-Wire (Why Series): “Why Serve?”

Ephesians 2:10 ESV For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

We are living in a world where the church has become institutionalized. We are taught that if we can just get to the church house and surround ourselves with believers that something amazing will transpire in our lives. We know that if we are to put our trust in Jesus that we can make it to heaven and be called children of God. Even with all these truths about the church, the fact still remains that people come to church to be entertained amongst other things. The question for many church attendees is no longer what can I do for the kingdom but rather what can the church do for me? However, that is not why we were called. We were both saved and created for a specific purpose and that purpose is to serve Jesus Christ. If you look at the verse Ephesians 2:10 God makes it known that we are His property and that He created us for good works. These works that He created us for have already been planned out before we were birthed onto this Earth. According to God, our place in the body of Christ, our community and even on our jobs has already been laid out. At the end of the verse He simply states that we should walk in those works that He has called us to.
