Day Twenty-Two – הַיּוֹם שְׁנַיִם וְעֶשְׂרִים לָעֹמֶר
I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. Ezekiel 36:27
“Created for Good Works (Eph 2:8, 9)”
God’s work of salvation has a goal in mind. We become new creations in the Messiah and are a treasured possession. He intends to be glorified in us as we bear much fruit. Doing the will of God (what He desires) is an ongoing process of sanctification that is in accord with God’s revealed words. Yeshua lived as one who did what His Father desired. We are to be children like Him. The Spirit of God fills us with purpose: to glorify God by obeying Him and living lives that show others the value of being citizens in His kingdom.
• In what ways, Lord, does Your word become flesh in me? How am I being led by Your Spirit through your word? How are you speaking to me today in your Torah?
• As religious beings we want to believe and worship something. How would you explain salvation by grace which leads to good works as God’s goal in us to a new believer?
• Read Eph 2:8, 9 and discuss how we know what the good works are that are mentioned by Paul. Also read and discuss Titus 2:11-14.What are those thing that we as believers should be zealous for “in this present age”?
