There are times when my heart is filled with pity for those who will not believe in God!
How can we look upon the awesome creation around us and not be filled with awe at what an amazing God we have? When we see the changing of the seasons, how can we not be impressed by the work of His hand? When we hear the roar of thunder, how can we not be impressed with His power? When we gaze upon the vastness of the sea, or the limitless wonder of the heavens, how can we not be breathless at His magnificence?
At times such as these, how can we not be filled with praise for Him? What a glorious sensation!
And then, to contemplate the fact that the God who created all of this and so more, that very God who holds it all together with His Word, and who reigns on high as King of kings and Lord of lords has actually taken the effort to know my name, to love me, to want to save me from my sin, and who desires a relationship with me…! This might be the most incredible and amazing thing of all.
Yes, these are times when I pity those who will not believe, those who will deny Him even when completely surrounded with evidence, so sure are they of their own great intellect… To miss all of this, to miss His hand at work, His awesome love and relationship with Him. How truly pitiful are such as these.
