Eph. 2, 10

I.  

Design is manifest in man’s whole being, the evidence of intelligence in all his make up.

II.

Christians are his new creation in Christ Jesus.  Only God can regenerate the heart.  But he does it.  “A new creature,” new creation.

III.

He has great designs in it all–“good works.”  [He] saves us not surely for our selves but for the good we may do.  “That ye might bring forth fruit.”  He cursed the barren fig tree.  The fruitless branch is cut off.

IV.

We are to work by ourselves but with him–to do those things he wills.

He is all the time working to great ends.  He is the senior member of the firm.  How could Paul, Luther, [and] Wesley have done their work without him?

V.

What may we think God is trying to do now in the world?  To reach the unsaved.  To instruct men in the way of life, to rid the world of war.  To relieve the sufferers.

Shall we not labor with him at such tasks?
