We are God's Workmanship ( Ephesians 2:8-10)
Good morning, my brothers and sisters in Christ.
God's Workmanship- 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.
