. . . since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 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 men are without excuse.  Romans 12:19-20

This past weekend I attended a Women’s Retreat where they taught about various worship styles. I love to worship God in nature.  The vastness of the heavens and the intricacies of the cell declare so clearly to me that the Creator is an all-wise, all-powerful Designer, and I want to get to know Him.

But others fail to see the One who made all these wonders.  I don’t really understand why.  But the Apostle Paul in Romans 1 discusses this reaction.

April 22 was Earth Day.  So many people celebrate the creation without recognizing the Creator.  That is a dangerous response.  Yes, we need to be good stewards of what God has entrusted to our care, but we must not go overboard and worship these things instead.

How do you celebrate Earth Day, and why?

When you see awesome things in nature, such as the Giant Sequoias, how do you feel? Do you think these ancient giants evolved by accident over eons of time, or does their majesty echo the power of the Creator/Designer?

What ways have you found to connect with God and worship Him?

  1. Did he design aids in children? Did he design War? Did he design nuclear/chemical weapons of mass destruction? Because if you credit him with the sky and the trees you also got to give him credit for all the evil messed up crap in the world today!

    1. No, God did not design AIDS in children, nor war, nor weapons of mass destruction. But you ask some good questions and deserve some answers. Please see my next post.
