Today's Verse: Romans 1:20

Saturday, April 22, 2006

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

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

The touch of the Master's hand is all around us. We see it in the order, beauty, and dazzling variety of creation. The great expanse of space, with its billions of stars, along with the incredible world of the microscopic are all testimony to an Orderer of great creativity. God has left his fingerprints all over his world so we can know that he has been here and will not abandon the work of his hands. But, will we respond to this beauty by seeking to live by the ways of the Great Orderer of the universe and choose to reflect his righteous character, gracious compassion, and loving justice?

My Prayer...

O God, thank you for your creation. Thank you for its beauty and variety. Thank you for the changing seasons and the beauty of Spring. But most of all, thank you for choosing to show yourself to us, your creatures. We pledge to respond to your grace with loving obedience. In Jesus' name. Amen.
