His Work

"This is [God's] work and glory, to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man."


Doesn't that scripture change everything? It does to me.

It changes mountains from just big mounds of stone with snow and trees on them to beautiful creations that God created just for us to enjoy and use in our life.

 It changes people from just being ordinary people to people who God loves so much that His entire purpose is to ensure their well-being.  

It changes the commandments from rules that must be obeyed to rules that God gave us so we could progress, so we could be eternally happy. 

It changes trials from events that make our life hard to events that God lets happen because they will help us become better people and more fit for eternal life. 

It changes times of catastrophe or loneliness from questioning God's involvement in your life to realizing that  God loves you, so this must be for your good.

  2. I took this verse for granted for years until an evangelical friend of mine said that when we die, we're going to stand around in heaven and give glory to God. "What does that mean, exactly?" I wondered. Then I read this scripture with new eyes--we don't give glory to God by standing around singing to Him. We give glory to Him by becoming like Him! What greater joy can he know than our striving and becoming.
