We are created anew when we are born again into newness of life. Upon that new birth we are called to bear fruit and to fulfill works that the Lord has ordained us to do and given us the strength through the Holy Spirit to accomplish. Each and every moment of our relationship with God he is authoring our faith, developing it, perfecting it, shaping it, and growing it. He who is faithful to start such a work in us will be faithful to finish it. We must walk in this newness of life and be obedient to Jesus. As we persist in obedience we will bear fruit, walk out a life of joy despite obstacles, and provide a testimony to others of the transforming power of the Lord. Let us cry out with all our strength: I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see!
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
