Today’s Scripture: For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Romans 1:20
Many people will say they cannot believe in a God that they cannot see. They say that they don’t have that kind of faith. They do, however, believe in things like oxygen, which they cannot see. They unknowingly submit themselves to unseen laws – laws of Creation such as gravity.
As we see in today’s verse, there is no one who has an excuse for not being saved. At the end of the day, the people who will go into hell will go there by choice. There is no one with an excuse – because of Creation.
Everywhere we look, this earth testifies to a Designer – the Creator God. From the rotation of the earth to the perfect distance of the earth from the sun – all of Creation speaks of God’s eternal power and Godhead. From the intricate design of the human cell to the beautiful simplicity of a flower, each part of creation shows a God who designed us and loves us.
We cannot take this verse to mean that we are excused from witnessing. It is our assignment from our Creator to spread the Good News of eternal life to all mankind. The power of creation is a tool that we can use to open conversations with the lost and bring them to the Savior.
