How Busy?

May I propose a thought to you?

Romans 1:20.

It’s a familiar verse to us Bible Thumpers.

20 His invisible attributes—His eternal power and His divine nature—have been clearly seen ever since the creation of the world, being understood through the things that have been made. So people are without excuse—   source

Have we considered the reason for the all-out assault Creation has weathered for many decades can be found in this verse?

It says the attributes, eternal power, divine nature have been clearly seen and we can come to some understanding of HIM through His creation.

Attributes. What GOD is like. Well, from creation, even without my Bible,  I know He is way smart and way kind! How He constructed the planet, how it functions in harmony with the bazillion components of it; how mama birds feed baby birds; how dogs love humans; etc. etc. etc.

Eternal power. Just what I can see with my naked eye, let alone a microscope and a telescope, tell me nothing matches His power and it never runs out.

Divine Nature. Yep. Creation tells me I am not like Him. He is divine. I’m not.

So, if I want to know there is a GOD and that HE is good and that HE is kind and loves me, all I have to do is look around me; and even in the mirror.

Is it any wonder then that there would be those who would want to discredit, nullify or just flat-out keep us too busy to look?

Myself

If we want to know why we have received the Grace of GOD; why we have been called to Him let us go to Romans 1:5 and find a glorious answer.

 It is through Him that we have received grace and [our] apostleship to promote obedience to the faith and make disciples for His name’s sake among all the Gentiles,  source

To promote obedience to the faith and make disciples for His namesake.

So, if I am not promoting you, reminding you, encouraging you and helping you become more obedient to the Scriptures and helping you become more yielded to JESUS, then I am disobedient to this Word myself.

LORD JESUS, help we Your Church not fail You here. Amen and amen.
