Ephesians 2:10 For we are His masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand in order that we would walk in them. (Holy Bible, Recovery Version)

Through the church God’s multifarious wisdom is made known to the enemy; the church thus becomes God’s poem, His wise exhibition of all that Christ is —Ephesians 3:10, 2:10; 1 Corinthians 1:30. (2014 Fall ITERO, msg. 1 outline)

In chapter 1 of Ephesians there is the positive side of God’s purpose for the sonship; and in chapter 3 there is the negative side against the enemy, that the enemy may be subdued and come to know God’s multifarious wisdom. God is not sorry that there is such an evil one as Satan, because without such a one, God’s multifarious wisdom could not be manifested. It is through all the troubles originating from Satan that God has a chance to show forth His wisdom. Suppose you have a car, and this car never gives you any trouble. If this is the case, no one could know how wise you are. A car without problems would not demonstrate your wisdom. But if you have a car that needs wisdom to handle, your wisdom will be brought to light, and all your passengers will marvel. It is a problem car, but what a wonderful driver! The whole universe has been damaged by Satan, but God needs such a one in order that His wisdom might be shown. (God’s Purpose for the Church, ch. 1, by Witness Lee)
