How God Reveals Himself  

Romans 1:18-21

 

Look at the delicate veins of an oak leaf, and you see God’s beauty. Observe the storm-whipped surf beating against a beach, and you witness His power. The Lord’s sense of order is revealed in the march of the seasons and the precise tilt and turning of the earth. People need to look no farther than nature to understand that God is real.

 

The book of Romans tells us the Lord’s revelation in nature renders inexcusable those who would deny His existence. There’s no reasonable explanation for the creation of the material universe other than an omnipotent God putting it all together.  The matter and fuel for a “big bang” had to come from Someone.

 

But nature can’t give us a full revelation. Creation does not show the Lord’s holiness or eternity. That’s why He gave us His Word. The Bible reveals God’s character, records His laws, and explains His expectations for the faithful. In its pages, we can learn about our Father and the kind of life He wants us to lead.  2 Timothy 3:16 tells us, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.”

 

Scripture teaches about the living Word — Jesus — who is the full revelation of God. Our heavenly Father wanted to ensure that humanity could know Him intimately. So, He sent His Son, clothed in flesh, to make Himself known. Jesus said, “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” (John 14:7).  Spend time in Bible Study and prayer to know your Father better.
