Discovering Christ’s beauty in nature
December 4, 2012
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.
It’s funny how, when we’re young, we’re not morning people at all. I remember back in the days when getting up at 7:00 a.m. was early. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become much more of a morning person.
I made this discovery when I lived in Florida. Our house was near the inter-coastal waterway, so I began to get up early to watch the sun rise over the ocean as I had my devotional time with God. I loved basking in the magnificence of creation, watching the colors explode on the water as the sun would begin to make its daily appearance.
As I think about the Christmas season, I’m reminded of those brilliant sunrises. You see, Jesus came into the world much like a sunrise. The light began to shine on the horizon when He was born. And that night, the brilliant colors began to explode as the glory of God filled the skies and countless angels sang praises to God.
And like the day, Jesus’s life ended when the sun set and He was crucified. But three days later, the sun rose again more brilliant than ever with His resurrection! What an amazing truth – and the wonderful gift of eternal life we have!

Become the man God desires!
You might think Jesus’ disciples were so extraordinary that you can’t possibly relate to them today.
But the truth is Jesus chose ordinary men to be His disciples and change the world—proof that He uses ordinary guys to do extraordinary things!
That’s why I want to send you two powerful resources today to help you or the man in your life become the man God desires: my 8-CD series called Why Believe – The 12, and my book, Man of God: Study Guide Edition.
In Why Believe – The 12, I give you inspiration—and words of warning—from the lives and beliefs of the disciples to help you live every day with significance and purpose.
And in Man of God: Study Guide Edition, you’ll come to understand the four vital areas of a man’s life that make him who he is!
These two resources are my gift to thank youfor your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, so please request yours when you give today!
