God’s gospel in nature

God writes the Gospel not only in the Bible,
but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
-Martin Luther

What a wildly wonderful world, GOD!
You made it all, with Wisdom at Your side,
made earth overflow with Your wonderful creations.
Psalm 104 v 24 (The Message)
As a work of art reflects the character of the artist,
so God’s creation reflects His character.
As we observe the created world
we see countless reflections of Him.
We see the beauty of flowers and trees,
clouds and sunsets,rain and mists,
majestic mountains and billowing seas.
We sense the joy of birds,  rainbow colours
and kittens at play.
We see God’s love displayed
when creatures nurture and protect their young.
We experience the beautiful rhythms of seasons,
trees laden with fruit, mornings rich with new promise
and evenings which bring needed rest.
All these reflections draw us closer to our Lord,
the source of all beauty, joy and love.
