I’m here to tell you: God is real whether you want to live like it or not. With how chaotic the world is right now and the division that continues, we need to start shifting our focus on God and not of this world. We were hardwired to live for God, not for this world. It’s pretty evident that right now, a lot of people are living for themselves and this world instead of living for God.
We can’t escape his existence and he designed this earth to be that way. You can’t get up in the morning without bumping into God.
The radical truth of God’s existence isn’t just preached to us on Sunday and Wednesday, it’s preached every day through the beauty of the sunset, the power of the storm, the inexhaustible wings of a hummingbird, the tall mountains, the whisper of the wind, the smell of steak cooking, the beautiful aroma of a rose, and so on.
The power and clarity of creation’s message leaves no human being with an excuse. You have to work to deny God’s existence because it is so readily visible everywhere you look. God did this on purpose because he is a God of grace. He did this so that we would run to him and not from him. He did this so that we would recognize our desperate need for him and bow to him saying, “holy, holy are you Lord.” He did this so that we would live in recognition of him.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”
Romans 1:18-25 ESV
