Not Created to Be Efficient

We’re not created to be just efficient
God has angels who have mastered that task
They wing straight to earth to obey His commands
And with precision do all that He asks!

But at Bethlehem’s manger they breathlessly watched
As in wonder they worshipped the babe
Who in quite inefficient manner had come
And on hay in a manger was laid

His life was a puzzle as He grew to a man
He asked a stranger for water to drink
And He preached to the poor then He slept through a storm
In a boat that was ready to sink!

Then seeing Him stumble as He carried His cross
They gasped as nails pierced hands and feet
And they wondered to think that He spoke to the thief
Who confessed at the last and believed

Till on that third day and just before dawn
When the angel was sent at God’s call
To roll back the stone so that we could see
That Christ efficiently lives for us all!
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
 which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10 ESV

    • Thanks Barb. I appreciate your reading and taking the time to respond. I was working on something else when these lines began to play in the background of my mind. It was an encouraging thought to me that God isn’t expecting the perfection of a well-run assembly line. If that were the case most of us would never be accepted in His presence. I am glad it touched you also. Blessings
