~1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Nuggets of Truth
I was recently discussing God’s wondrous creation with a blogging friend. I recently visited Alaska and was able to tour this beautiful land. Each moment was spent gazing at God’s handiwork. The ultimate artist painted vistas that a mere camera could not capture! My eyes filled with tears when I beheld the majesty of Mt. McKinley, North America’s tallest mountain! Again, I wept when I saw my first bald eagle nestled in the tree top. I was then filled with awe when I witnessed a baby humpback whale playfully demonstrating its strength and gracefulness for almost half an hour in front of our boat.
As a child of the Creator, I appreciate God’s handiwork and give Him the glory and the praise! Our Heavenly Father has blessed us by giving us such beauty to behold each day. When we see this beauty, it is our opportunity to glorify Him and praise Him for His wondrous love for us!
However, to the unbeliever, God’s creation will convict their unbelief. The Bible states that the unbeliever will be without excuse when they stand before Him and claim that they “didn’t know God existed.”
~Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Refining the Gold
Just gazing at a sky filled with starts will cause the heart to wonder. I like Ray Comfort’s statement to atheists:
Everything cannot come from nothing!
God honors a soul that sees creation and wonders if there is a God. Romans 1:20 tells us that mankind is without excuse because nature itself speaks of Him. Therefore, God will see to it that this soul has the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
When the unbeliever chooses not to believe in God, he is accountable for disregarding even nature, God’s creation. What will the unbeliever say when he stands before Christ?
~Romans 14:10b …for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
