"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."My challenge to you is this: take some time to study God's world. Keep learning new things about nature. Not that you have to go back to school or read some boring textbook or become an expert. Just look around you, look things up. Share some amazing facts you've learned!
In Revelation 22:13, God says, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."
I started April with Alpha. God is the first, the beginning. Creation started with him. Everything started with him. He is also Omega, the end. Omega doesn't start with Z. But Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet. And Z is the last letter of ours.
So I started April with him, and I am ending with him. For all of us, I offer this prayer:
Thank you, Creator God, for the universe and all it contains. Thank you for the beauty and diversity that cover this great Earth. You desire to show yourself in the things that you created - please help us to see you in them. And help us to care for the Earth that you made us stewards over. You are truly an awesome God, deserving of all praise. And we praise you. Amen.
Congratulations to all my fellow A-Zers who made it through the challenge. I look forward to reading lots of the follow-up posts.
