How Creation Reveals the Creator Day 7 – Sunday Selah
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. … The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-5,9-14, ESV)
It is easy for us to forget that if God is eternal, powerful, authoritative, trustworthy, and creative, His son, the Lord Jesus Christ, is too. John reminds us that the Son was certainly present and active in creation. How often do we picture that scene? All three persons of the Trinity created a work of art beyond anything our finite minds could have ever dreamed up!
As we prepare our hearts for worship, how can we not think of just how far Christ stooped to rescue us? He formed humanity out of the dust beneath our feet, and yet, when He came to walk on that dust beside us, we rejected Him. He willingly cloaked Himself in human flesh and came to reconcile us with a God we could never reach on our own. When we trust Him for salvation, we are adopted as children of God! From the moment we fell, the Father knew what would have to be done, and the Son knew what He would have to endure. He never turned back, and because of His sacrifice, we are free to fulfill the purpose we were made for. We are free to worship and glorify our Creator, at peace with Him through the suffering of His Son.
