When we were first saved, not many of us were told that we were signing up for work. Generally we were told that Salvation is a free gift of God, that's true. It is also true that we were created for good works Eph. 2:10. The Bible has many illustrations to teach us about works and examples of good works. The Lord Himself gives instructions in our message this morning about our works. So I would like for us to explore some of the essentials for working effectively. We can do a lot of things that we call works, but are they effective and are they works that will endure?
