TITLE: The Work Of God
By Thomas Kimble


The Work of God:

In the beginning God created heaven and earth, and his work is still in progress. Look around and take stock of all the things that God has done. Look at the splendid sights in nature and ask your self, could anyone but God have accomplished this? Look at the genetic code for your fellow humans, who but God could have created something like this?

God is working constantly to assure that his creation is a thing of beauty for us to behold. We as the creation of God are the only inhabitants with a free choice as to how we live our lives. If we look around us we can see the endless works of God everywhere.

God made this place for us to live, the air we breath, the sights, smells, and the natural beauty of the earth are the work of God. God wants us to treat his creation with respect and reverence, but because the choice is up to us we often fail. We trash this earth with our waste, we do not make good use of the resources. We continue to kill each other for little or no reason. We steal, we tell lies, and do any number of things that God would not approve of.

Some day, we know not when, there will be a day of reckoning and the work of God will be almost destroyed along with a good share of humanity. In the end God will step in stop it all or no one would survive. When this time comes there will be a lot of us that will wish we had changed before it was too late.

Just as God worked to bring about all this bountiful creation for us, we need to work to be accepted into the kingdom of God for all eternity. We must remember that many will be called but few will enter. Our work begins with living the life that God wants us to live, along with keeping God in our hearts and souls every day. God knows that we will not be able to live a perfect life and he sacrificed his only son that we should still be able to come to his kingdom. If we fail to do our work and loose out on Gods promise of eternal life then for us Jesus died in vain. Jesus gave us the only chance we have to come home to God and only through him is it possible. Our work is laid out for us and how long we have to get it done only God in heaven knows. We need to work every day like it is our last for it well could be.

YOu wrote this very well. What I think might not appeal to a reader is it comes across as a sermon and most people want sermons only in church. You could say the same truths and deliver it in a way where more people will listen, and learn and grow without compromising anything you said. Please take this in a good way as I am just giving feedback as a reader. You want your reader to read what you write so sometimes we have to be creative to get our mesasge out there.:) Your writing skills are terrific!

You have shared many wonderful thoughts in this article. I agree with Terri's comments. It may also be helpful to narrow your focus and then expand on those ideas. Keep writing.
