2:10 For we are his workmanship - Which proves both that salvation is by faith, and that faith is the gift of God. Created unto good works - That afterwards we might give ourselves to them. Which God had before preprepared - The occasions of them: so we must still ascribe the whole to God. That we might walk in them - Though not be justified by them.
Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship. It is God who saved us; as new creatures, he had made us through the gospel. We are not saved by works, but are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, designed henceforth to abound in them. Which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. It is his ordination that all who believe the gospel and are saved should practice good works. God has graciously quickened us, saved us, made us new creatures, and prepared us unto good works.

EPHESIANS 2:10: it says we are created in THEIR image, Therefore, this includes THEIR, likewise...also, likeness. Predestined and ordained to His workmanship that 'furthers' the Word, be Fruitful [Fruit of THE HOLY SPIRIT] and MULTIPLY [stretching OUR SPIRITUAL MUSCLES, BELIEVING GOD CAN DO MUCH WITH OUR FAITH, SMALL AS A MUSTARD SEED IF SO, EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL WE CAN ASK OR 'THINK', solid faith in our ordained created hearts.... as in the BEGINNING, in GENESIS 1, you see the great miracles only God can produce. As our perfect example, through “GOOD WORKS” like HIS Son did, Yahshua Messiah, on earth. We have an inherited ordination, pre-destine future, pre-approved priesthood, pre-Ascribed Alleluia Alpha doctorate to operate through His AL 'READY' Resurrected ANOINTED Name and Blood shed for us. When Jesus asked for the CUP to be removed, the weight of our sins wore on HIM to the point in prayer HE sweated blood. Yet, HE LEARNED OBEDIENCE THROUGH ALL THAT SUFFERED, A SINLESS SACRIFICIAL LAMB OF GOD, JESUS, PRESSED AND 'ADDED' yet NOT My will but THY WILL BE DONE. Simple faith is greater works when we act in accordance to God’s Ordinance. We have a sop TO MULTIPLY, BE FRUITFUL, BE WISE, DO GOOD, BE WILLING, BE OBEDIENT, HAVE FAITH, BELIEVE, TRUST AND SOW LOVE AS JESUS WAS SOWN INTO US, ENGRAVED AND ENGRAPHED, ENABLED TO DO EVEN MORE AS JESUS PROPHESIED, GREATER WORKS WE SHALL DO AND STATED TO PETER, UPON 'THIS ROCK' THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NEVER PREVAIL. We no longer live but it is Christ WHO secures us and now resides in our hearts, minds, spirit and soul, even unto the marrow of our bones setting a flame the fire even into our very CORE wells, LIVING WATER being OUR DAILY INTAKE AND SUBSTANCE. WE SHALL NEVER DIE OF THIRST AS LONG AS WE DRINK THOSE HOLY GOLDEN INHERITED SPIRITUAL MULTIPLE FACETED YUMMY 'OH TASTE AND SEE DIOLICIOUS NUGGETS! Scriptures satisfidelis, SABBATHICALLY AND BEYOND! GOD BLESS You all!

Annette asked "Are we His masterpiece". YES in Christ Jesus we are. What blows me away is the fact that Almighty God did not consider His Son too good for us !!!!!

That, we are a PRODUCT of the SPIRITUAL world which GOD owns. We are a property having been created with his own HANDS. First as a mass,then with HIS soul to b living beings. With a purpose to live unto his WILL through His SPIRIT which is not part of the BODY but an intergral unit to confirm with CHRIST through which we connect to/with GOD. We need the spirit as the third element to conquer the BODY n convert it to its IMMORTAL status if we are to defeat the inherited sinful condition. This is the WILL of GOD.
