COLUMN: Celebrating the author of creation
Spring is such a wonderful time of the year. We see the trees bud, the smell of fresh mowed grass, and new growth comes alive. We can look around and see creation spring to life. It reminds us of the faithfulness of God. The author of creation gives us glimpses of how much he loves us and that we can trust in him.
In the New Testament, in the book of Romans, we see a verse that tells us how we can see the characteristics of God in the world around us.
“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
God blesses us with the ability and opportunity to see his power and his nature as we look around at his creation. We can learn more about him through what he has made.
We can stand in awe and as we look around at all that’s been created for us to adore. From the beginning of creation in the book of Genesis, we read how all that God created was meant for us to enjoy.
Genesis 1:30 talks about how God has given us the plants, the animals and everything that has life.
As we appreciate the spring, the warmer temperatures, and the sunshine, let’s celebrate new life and the promises of God. Let’s look around at nature and see the qualities and character of our creator. The one who loves us and has made us in his image!
