It’s always interesting to watch a work in progress and hopefully the photos of the work on the car park has helped you to see what really goes on to make the finished product look so smooth and even.

Notice the slope to make easy access for wheelchairs:

All this work reminds me, though, that we are God’s workmanship, created to do good works in Christ Jesus (Eph 2:10) and that we too are a work in progress. As the poster reminds us, God’s not finished with us yet!

John reminds us, “Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.” (1 John 3:2-3) The sanctifying and refining work of Christ in our lives isn’t yet complete, but we know that “he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Phil 1:6) You can’t see the finished product yet in our lives, unlike the car park, but the work is surely ongoing!
