“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
King James Version (KJV)
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.
