Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has ordained before that we should walk in [doing good works].6 [When you have been delivered (freed) from the sins and evil in your heart, God will guide your thoughts, words, and works. God makes us a fit instrument for His hand to show the world the love of God, to shake the nations, and to hold out the word of life. Walking under the Spirit's total control, we walk as Jesus walked, and we do works of righteousness as Jesus worked righteousness; then are we righteous; then we bring honor and glory to God.]

6 we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works. We are purified by Jesus — his works — his workmanship, not our works. But he purifies us so we can then do good works, prompted and energized by him. Men are purified and perfected to become sons forever, but also so that they can demonstrate the love of God to the world. A major purpose of Christ giving his life for us, was that he could purify for himself his own peculiar [special] people, zealous for good works. Titus 2:13-14. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand. Dan 12:10. The wicked, (those who sin), will not understand; Christendom, (still in sin), does not understand.
