The Work

Love is work. This is the world we are presented. Satan did not realize that his making a wreck of things made a worthy ground for creation. Why things are as they are is in large part by adversity. Without Satan, there would be no adversity, and many, many things would be only of academic value. This is not to say that evil will ultimately be forgiven: this just shows how God handles adversity: it is with such skill that it looks like Satan is doing God’s will. This is in no wise the case; he does everything in opposition to what he perceives is God’s will. You cannot win against the God who is love. This is where the whole issue of pride comes in, that somehow, the thought was followed that the creation can prove greater than the creator. Not Satan’s way, can this be so. Evil by its very nature cannot sustain itself, much less a world.

So what Satan did was that within creation, now love is no longer free, but instead, that love needs work. That there is pain, and that it is not fun. There is randomness rampant in the cosmos, disasters to kill and maim great swaths of population without thought as to who is deserving and who is not. In this world, Satan is its prince, for how else could he have tempted the Lord with all the world’s kingdoms? This is a world where evil is easy, and good is hard. So life is the test of whom you belong to: will you do the work that God intended for you, or will you go the path of least resistance, follow only that which is easy, and what gives you advantage? This world has now become a worthy test for God’s children to prove themselves worthy of the life they are given. Courage, child. God is love.
