A lot of people think that being saved is a matter of works. But, here it says that you are God’s workmanship. It says you were created (kitzo) for good works. The word created means that refers to the work of God in creating you for a purpose. Think of it this way, if you have a apple tree in your front yard and it bears oranges what would you think? You’d probably be astonished. You might think you were seeing things. If the banana trees that my parents have in their backyard bear apples, I would be absolutely amazed. It isn’t right or natural. Likewise, a Christian will bear fruit also, good works. It is as much a sign of who you are as anything else.
