Do you ever pause to marvel at the wonder and beauty of God’s handiwork in creation? We are surrounded by it every day – a breathtaking sunrise or sunset, the vibrant colors of fall, the seemingly endless varieties of plant and animal life, the complexities of our human bodies, the incomprehensible magnitude of the stars in the heavens, and on and on. Amidst the vast diversity of God’s creation, there rings out a harmonious anthem of praise to Him – “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above declares His handiwork.” (Ps. 19:1)
Certainly, God’s handiwork in creation is a fitting illustration of His design to receive even greater praise through the diversity of His blood-bought people. Every believer has a part to play in this symphony of praise, as we faithfully minister to one another “…as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Pet. 4:10).
Beloved, how much more should we marvel at the wonder and beauty of God’s handiwork in redemption through Jesus Christ! And how eagerly and earnestly ought we to love and serve one another, for the glory of the One who saved us, and for the proclamation of His excellencies to those yet lost in their sins (1 Pet. 2:9-12).
Because He lives,
