Sunday – Poetry
Reading – Psalms 19-21
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.”
Psalms 19:1-2 NIV
My dad was a hypocrite.
He was a leader for our church’s youth group while he was an atheist. He later admitted this to me.
Later in life he also admitted that he was wrong, not just in being a fake Christian. The more he observed nature as well as the miracle of human life, the more he realized that there must be a Creator.
We look at a magnificent building and know there was an architect.
We look and a beautiful painting and know there was an artist.
We look at a complex machine and know there was an inventor.
Have you looked at the Grand Canyon?
Have you taken a hike in the Rockies?
Have you stood on an Oceanside cliff and felt the power of the waves?
Have you been in the wilderness on a clear night and looked up at the billions of stars?
My logical brain tells me that there must be a Creator.
My heart tells me that the Creator loves me!
His Word and my experience confirms it.
The next time you see a natural wonder (for us in the Front Range of Colorado, just look to the West), realize that the Creator made that with a word.
If He cared enough about us to make our world so intricately beautiful and work so well, surely he cares enough about us to provide a way for us to be with Him.
That way is Jesus.
Let creation open your eyes to the Creator and Savior.
