In preparing for some upcoming speaking opportunities I was drawn back to Ephesians 2 – and once again blown away by God’s kindness!
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:4-10 ESV)
“For we are his workmanship” – I don’t see any statement here ‘except for those with disabilities.’ Everyone called by God into life with Jesus, regardless of ability, is created in Christ Jesus for good works. Let’s look hard for everyone’s gifts and let them use those gifts as Jesus intended, for his glory and for our joy!
