“We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus…” (Ephesians 2:10
The word for “workmanship: is “poema.”
Each of us is a poem, written by God, adding lines and stanzas as we live out our days.
some phrases are joyful; others are sad.
Some are funny, bringing smiles and laughter;
Other lines are tragic and sorrowful.
Many parts of our poems seem mundane; yet without them, there would be no depth or substance.
Each poem tells of God somehow:
His love, strength, creativity or great sense of humor.
Line after line details His goodness and unfathomable wisdom
Pictures made from being and doing show His glory.
His deep compassion, hope, joy and overwhelming greatness are reflected in us.
Each poem is a unique work of art
That demonstrates aspects of God as no other can.
His paradoxes are spoken in all languages;
Shades of color and light shape His reality.
And it is only when all creation is put together that we even come close to expressing Him.
