The final two habits of discipleship from Pastor John Samuel Barnett come from the second part of a famous verse every Christian should have memorized. Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” That is an amazing truth that we should all respond to and embrace and praise God for.

However, in verse 10, we see the reason for that gift, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”

We are called to do good works and not only that, but good works that are unique only to you; that God calls only you to carry out! We do these good works not to earn or payback what God has done but as an expression of love and worship for what He has done. We who disciple, should teach others to invest in their faith and consecrate their life to those good works God has entrusted to us.
