God’s Creative Purpose

“The anger of the LORD will not turn back until he has executed and accomplished the intents of his mind. In the latter days you will understand it clearly.” ~Jeremiah 23:20 (NRSV).

God’s creative purpose:

Dynamic expression of love,

Active in grace to redeem,

Eternal in peace from above.

God’s creative purpose:

Making wisdom known,

Truth from above the witness,

The Saviour, his Son, has shown.

God’s creative purpose:

The pursuit of interminable justice,

Arriving in an age to come,

Finally an end to darkness.

God’s creative purpose:

Reconciling a people in grace,

Love and wisdom and justice,

Worship is the final embrace.
