Workmanship of God

[2:1] And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 
[2] in which you once walked, following the course of this 
world, following the prince of the power of the air, the 
spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—
[3] among whom we all once lived in the passions of our 
flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, 
and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of 
mankind. [4] But God, being rich in mercy, 
because of the great love with which he loved us, 
[5] even when we were dead in our trespasses, made
us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been 
saved—[6] and raised us up with him and seated us 
with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 
[7] so that in the coming us in Jesus. [8] For by 
grace you have been saved through faith. And this 
is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 
[9] not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 
[10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus 
for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we 
should walk in them.

(Ephesians 2:1-10 ESV)

We were dead in our sins following Satan.  When he interposed 
himself into our lives. Because of his love for us gave us faith 
to believe in him. We are seated next to Jesus in heaven. Our 
salvation is a gift from God we are workmanship of God prepared 
beforehand we should walk in.
