Do you ever just become overwhelmed by something? Something grand. Something mysterious. Something beautiful. Something powerful. As I read the words at the beginning of Psalm 50,
"The Lord, the God of gods, has spoken;
he has called the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting,"
an image of the earth penetrated my mind. An image of the earth as seen from space.
WOW. Just stare at that picture for a minute. How lucky we are to be able to see such a majestic image! But at the same time, how desensitized are we to such things?
"From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God." Romans 1:20
Now we can see the earth at our feet and from outer space. Looking at this photo, I am just overwhelmed with the awesomness of the inner workings of the earth. Atmosphere. Gravity. Weather. Light. Tides. Metamorphosis. Photosynthesis. Rain. The seas. And that is only the beginning, ignoring the pinnacle of all creation: us. The earth is an amazingly complex creation and this photo is evidence to that.
The Lord God calls to the Earth. He calls to the earth to know him. To know salvation through his Son. To know his glory and his power and his justice and his mercy and his love.
