Chat: Workmanship

A chat with a non believer yesterday.  We were talking about my liver transplant and my triathlon story.

This morning I was reading Ephesians for my devotion.  All I can focus on is God's Workmanship

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:8-10

J: No.. you didn't go risking your life.. u trained hard to keep your body healthy
that's all u too
u could have been like the other unvi. peeps and drink till the cows came home
but you choose not to

me: ...who said i didn't :)
i got drunk a lot in university

J: hahhaa.... oh u did

me: it is not like i chose a liver
or i heal myself
i am more of a a observer than a participant

J: lol I highly doubt that

me: so i can't really take much effort for my part

J: do you eat lots of junk food.. does that put a strain on the liver too?

me: b/c my part is so to what's everything that's ahppening
i see more Him working in me.than me working in me
i didn't pick the hospital..i didn't choose to come to canada
or the doc ...and his team
or the care..
etc etc....
or the organ :o

J: no

me: so i is more of a miracle..
compare to my triathlon.....i think the operation is much cooler...
