2 Timothy 2:20-21 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
James 2:14-17 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
(Faith Without Works Is Dead)
-We are not saved by our works we are saved by His Grace! When we get saved than there is a job( work) to do for His Kingdom. And we do it with our whole heart.
Colossians 3:23-24 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
WHAT IS GOOD WORKS? God works is a sign of a sincere and grateful faith. They include actions for the great commission that is evangelism, service in the church and charity. Jesus was God's vessel in the book of Matthew 28:16-20 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
We are to be a pot of clay in God's hands so his glory shines through all your cracks, we represent jars of Clay with physical wear from trials. In 2 Corinthians 4:5 -12 5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. If you read Acts 9,Paul was Saul , Saul was killing the Christian, Paul was a follower of Jesus Christ and now Paul is an Apostle for Jesus Christ. Ananias lay hands on Saul received his sight back. God is calling Ananias to be a vessel for Him - God needs a vessel. God Bless,
