Reflections on Ephesians 2:8-9 and 3:10-11 —
Man is on the center stage, if there is “free will”
Look at the faithful man
who chose the Lord over the frivolities of life
Praise him, for he chose nobly and wisely
Let the audience sing the praise of this valiant one!
God is good, but the play goes on without His lead
Characters play their part, and by chance, derive the plot
In the end, it is the man who chooses God that takes the bow.
If it is God’s will, let Him be praised
Let the audience marvel at His wisdom
Let them appreciate the development of the plot
for He demonstrated His great love,
showing mercy on some, loving them despite their sin
He conducts the play, letting the evil have their day
but in the end, He saves His appointed ones
Let Him take the bow before the roaring applause.
