Our worship this Sunday will be rooted in Ephesians 2.10. “For we are what God has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.” In “A Blueprint for Discipleship” Kevin Watson writes: “If we believe that both faith and works are important, then we might logically ask, ‘Which works?’ In other words, what should followers of Jesus Christ do to grow in faith?” Our scripture this week lifts up both. We know that finding our way through the maze of “faith and works” is complex. Wesleyan discipleship considers a faithful response to the love of God to be one that combines both. We remember that Jesus calls us to reach in love to our neighbor even as we are working out our own faith.
What steps might you want to take at this point to be more faithful to God’s calling in your life?
What has God been calling you to do that you have been putting off doing?
