And so what do we see?


When we gaze up into the clear night sky, what do we see?  When we are far away from the city lights and we look upward, what can we learn?

Can we learn as much looking around the natural beauty of the earth? What about looking into a microscope and seeing the amazing complexity of a single living cell?

Yes, we can, for these all proclaim the glory of God!

We can hardly gaze upon Creation without coming to see the very handiwork of the Creator Himself… and yet millions see nothing. How very pathetic.

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.
 They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.

Psalm 19:1-4

How hard it must be to see the handiwork of God and still deny it; how miserable the life that seeks to be without purpose.  How great the burden must be to carry the obligation of denial.

 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 people are without excuse.

Romans 1:20

How can we take any pleasure in observing the folly of men who seek to deny the obvious?  How can we simply see such people as debating opponents?

The poor souls who would deny God’s glory need to hear the truth; and if we will not be inspired by God’s glory that is all around us to share His Truth… then who will be?

    Relative to this, Psalm 8 (and other texts) come to mind, as well.
