πŸ‘‘πŸ•― God’s Two Poems

In Romans 1:18-20 the Apostle Paul declares that ungodly men are β€œwithout excuse” because they are surrounded by the evidences of the Creator’s β€œeternal power and Godhead.”

Our Authorized Version calls the creation, in this passage, β€œthe things that are made,” but in the Greek it is called literally β€œtheΒ poyeema,” from which we get our word poem. The Apostle refers, of course, to the harmony of God’s creation, and is it not indeed amazing how billions of heavenly bodies can continually revolve in the vastness of space and never collide! And are not the flowers, the seasons, the sunsets all part of a harmonious creation, which God alone could have conceived and set to music?

But very interestingly, this wordΒ poyeema is used just once more in Scripture. We find it in Eph.Β 2:10, where it is translated β€œworkmanship.” Let us consider this passage in its context:

β€œFor by grace are ye saved, through faith, and that not of your- selves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.

For we are His workmanship [Gr.,Β poyeema], created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Eph. 2:8-10).

Romans speaks of the poem of creation, Ephesians of the poem of redemption, and the latter is the more wonderful. An old hymn says: β€œβ€˜Twas great to speak a world from naught; ’tis greater to redeem.”

In this poem of redemption which God has composed, we believers too often want to change some word or phrase. We would like this or that in our circumstances to be different. Ah, but this would destroy the meter and meaning of God’s new creation.

Thank God, when we believers go to be with Christ, we will see the beauty and glory of the poem of redemption. Then we will rejoice that He did indeed β€œwork all things together for good” for us. source
