We are . . . created in
Christ Jesus to do good works.
Ernest and Sarah were on vacation in a city that was new to them. When a stranger approached them and said, “Tourists, huh?” they froze. He smiled and said, “Welcome to our city.” He gave each of them a chocolate bar and walked away.

Small actions can bring big blessings.
James jotted a few paragraphs about the flawed claim of faith without deeds—concluding that “faith without deeds is dead” (Jas 2:14–26).
Paul wrote: “We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works.” Then he tied a ribbon around that package, saying that God long ago assigned those works for us to do (Eph 2:10).
Don’t let one of those God-assigned-works-for-you-to-do slip by you. “Show me, Lord, what you long ago decided you wanted me to do today.”
You are on Special Assignment.
