Card of the week: The Work of God

Verse:  PofGP, Moses 1:39

Text: “For behold, this is my work and my glory--to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man”

Verse Rule: ABILITY: If this verse is in the same chapter as “The Glory of God”, the chapter may be closed as a Wisdom Book.
Sacrifice Cost: 3
Markers: Strength
Icons: W, W

We are literally the spirit children of a great and loving God. I believe that to my core. And just like I want the best for my kids, He wants the best for His. And just like I should dedicate my life and work for the betterment of my own children, so has He.

So, this father’s day, I want to share one of my favorite verses, and one of my favorite combos. In fact, I based a whole deck on this combo.

The combo itself is, of course, obvious. You play “The Work of God”, and then you play “The Glory of God into the same chapter. Ba-boom. Quick and easy two blessings.

Where it gets crazy is when you build a deck around it.  Here’s how it works: First, you have three copies of each of these main cards in the deck. Then, you have other verses that can fetch these two directly, like verses with “Keyword: Man/Men” or “Keyword: Eternal”. Put three copies of each of those in your deck. Maybe even a few “Judgement Day”s to fetch the two back from the discard after you’ve used them. Finally, load your deck with higher-value Prayer Effect verses. These will help you cycle through your deck more quickly and get to these two verses. Then, add some simple 1-drop verses that you can either play into chapters your opponents are building, or use as sacrificial fodder to play the two big ones.

Seeker’s Quest! It’s the most fun you can have with your scriptures! To get the game, and get in on the fun, go to
