His Creation, His Workmanship

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

My life is not about me.  It is not about my fancies, my desires, my goals, my dreams or even my ministry.  I have been created for one reason only, to reflect the glory of my creator. I am his workmanship, his painting, his sculpture, his creation.  The same is true for the church. The body of Christ is his bride, his workmanship, his creation, his handiwork. God created it for a very distinct mission (Matt 28:19-20) and gave it a very distinct message (John 3:16). With this blog it is my goal to support that mission and message and to be of encouragement to the church and God’s people.  Only 3 in 10 churches are enjoying any type of sustained healthy growth.  May God use this page to bring information, inspiration and transformation to his body!
