OUR THEME FOR 2018
(Part 44)

DESTINED FOR GREATNESS – 4


March 11, 2018
Today’s reading: Ephesians 2:4-10


We are destined for greatness. This stems from who or what we are, according to God’s design, and from what God intends for us to do for Him. “For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them.” (v.10).

We are God’s handiwork, the very work of His hands. God created us according to His image and likeness. Now he has re-created us in the image of His Son Jesus. We are to be another Christ. We are to be holy as God is holy.

And God has destined us for good works, in fact, to do what is His very own work. Jesus saved us, and we are in turn to become instruments of salvation for many others. During Jesus’ public ministry, he did great works. We are to do even greater works than he did, accompanied by signs and wonders.

Then, when our time on earth is done, God would have “raised us up with him, and seated us with him in the heavens in Christ Jesus” (v.6a). That would be the fullness of greatness we are destined for, to be in the presence of God eternally in heaven.

So what do we have to look forward to? It is this: “that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” (v.7). Immeasurable riches. Fullness of grace. What do you call all that? It is being destined for greatness.
