The Glory of God’s Creation

God’s creation of the universe around us and the world in which we live is truly an awesome thing to behold.  The universe is unimaginably huge, full of stars, galaxies and wonders.  Our world, the earth is amazing in every way, the seas, the mountains, vegetation, wildlife and even our own bodies and how they work: Amazing!

Perhaps the most amazing thing of all… or maybe I should say what makes the Creation so very awesome is the fact that in it we see God’s glory.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

(Romans 1:20)

To look upon the universe that has been created is to look upon the very power, qualities and nature of God, not in some sort of mystical sense; the creation itself is surely not God, but in the sense that God has demonstrated His essence in the creation.  No wonder the power of the sea is so breath-taking!  No wonder we gaze at great mountains with awe, and at pastures and fields with wonder!  In each of these God has shown us something of Himself, just as He has in plant life and animal life.

The only rational question is this:  How can anyone look at these things and deny Him?
