Eph 2:10
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
God has a plan for our lives. That plan includes doing good works. The bible says, in the book of Acts chapter 10 verse 38,  that Jesus went about doing good and healing all...This was the plan for Jesus' life,  and  it is the plan for our life as well.  Jesus healed many people everywhere he went and taught  them how to live a victorious life. When we surrender our lives totally to Christ we begin to step into the plan God has for our lives. We then can discover the good works that God has prepared in advance for us to do.  A friend of mine once said, “God is serious about his business.” Doing good and filling heaven is God’s business.  So being Christ like, we should also be about the Father’s business.
