Creation sermon.

Have you read the book of Job? In chapter 38 (https://bit.ly/3uA8gtB), God asks Job such great questions about creation, like:

“Where does light come from and where does darkness go?”
“Where is the path to the source of light?
“Where is the home of the Eastwind?

The world is full of wonderful things that help me get to know God. I’m fascinated by the variety of birds, like the formation of geese as they fly. (My list is endless.)

What in nature reminds you of our Mighty and Wonderful Creator God?
Read Romans 1: 20 (https://bit.ly/2REk2EK)

Creation is a loud sermon pointing us to the Creator.
Are you paying attention?

The Plant Outside

It’s been just over a year since our world was turned upside down by this pandemic! I recently heard, “we’re all in the same river, but in different boats.” We’ve all experienced lockdown and COVID19 in different ways.

Here’s a question: How have you experienced God?

There’s a plant on my stoep. Throughout the seasons, it changes – new shoots have, some flowers, and then in the winter, bare. The plant is still there and still alive – surviving all seasons and conditions.

God cares for that plant, He cares even more for you and me.
We’ve been battered.
But we’re still here.

Hebrews 13:5 (https://bit.ly/2A82aZM)

So will I

Stargazing is something I try to do as often as possible and whenever I do I can’t help but sing “So will I” by Hillsong. Nature in itself moves me to worship Christ, because our powerful and creative God, created something so beautiful.

In the same way He created the heavens and the earth, He created you and me.
Revelation 4:11 (https://bit.ly/31RLYaf) says that God is pleased with everything He created, us humans included.

Today or in the coming week, spend some time in nature. And remember that what you see around you is as beautiful and mind blowing as the person God created you to be.

CREATION’S CREATOR

Thinking about the state of our planet gets super overwhelming. Plastic in the oceans and climate change can leave us desperate and depressed – or in denial, because the problems feel too huge to tackle.

Truth is, God put us in charge of the earth. No matter how big the issues, His grace is sufficient for us to fulfil that calling. Also, ‘the life of every living thing is in His hand, and the breath of every human being.’
(Job 12:10 – https://bit.ly/3r5gjfI)

God hasn’t lost His grip on creation. He’s at work in the world, lending us courage to keep on keeping on making a difference.
