'God created man for nothing else but happiness' (Jonathan Edwards, American preacher 1703-1758)
The Masterpiece that is creation
The Greek 'poiema' is the word from which we get the English word 'poem'. Interestingly in Ephesians 2:10, when the apostle Paul says 'you are God's workmanship' he uses the word 'poiema'. One translation puts it 'you are God's masterpiece.' The Christian is a poiema/masterpiece/poem of God's grace. We are a wonderful new creation. Creation is also a poeima pointing to a creator.
