We who preach and write, do so in a manner different from which the Scriptures have been written. We write while we make progress. We learn something new every day. We speak as we still knock for understanding...If anyone criticizes me when I have said what is right, he does me an injustice. But I would be more angry with the one who praises me and takes what I have written for Gospel truth than I would be with the one who criticizes me unfairly. -Augustine


Creation’s Glimpse

Creation is our master teacher, proclaiming the character of God. From the simplicity of the sparrow to the delicate unfolding of a rose, all of creation gives a glimpse of the eternal mysteries of life.

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead” (Romans 1:20).

Seeking truth through creation is a lifelong pursuit, and is most satisfying when accompanied by prayer and dogged tenacity. In our search for hidden treasure, each newly discovered nugget brings a greater realization of and admiration for the awesomeness of God and His unfailing character! In 2 Chronicles 15:2, God makes a promise: “You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart.”

I can think of no other lifelong pursuit that is of more value than the passionate pursuit of God. May His creation be the platform from which you discover unspeakable treasure and learn of His awesome majesty. And may His creation be the avenue through which you catch yet another glimpse of our great and awesome God!

With each of your senses you can detect the beauty of the Lord. Listen to His still, small voice; hear His thunderous roar! O taste and see that the Lord is good! Soon you will sing with the songwriter, “As the deer panteth for the water, so my soul longeth after Thee!”
