Far Too Wonderful

Verse
Romans 9:19-21 NLT

For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay.

The Coming of the Lord

by Alistair Begg

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”
(Hebrews 11:6 ESV)

If you walked into a field and found a cell phone, you would probably wonder who had left it there and try to identify the owner. You would not think, “Wow, look at this amazing cell phone that spontaneously created itself and now is working and streaming videos and receiving text messages.”

Similarly, when we look at the world around us—at trees and flowers and animals and people—it is logical to conclude that Someone designed the universe to work just right. Any alteration in its design and we would not be here. Clearly, there is an ultimate reality—an Almighty Being—who created the universe with purpose and order.

Apart from the world around us, we see evidence of God in our own hearts. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God “has put eternity into man’s heart.” We have spiritual awareness and an innate sense of morality—what some theologians have described as a “God-shaped hole” in our hearts—that is best explained by the existence of God. Why would we desire to know God if he did not exist? Our desire to see injustice righted, our inborn sense of duty and morality, and our deep spiritual yearning all point to the existence of God.

If our analysis of the world instinctively tells us that there is a Supreme Being, then the next question is, Which is the true God? Christians accept that the evidence for God we see in nature and in our experience is the starting point. But beyond this “general revelation,” as theologians call it, we can see a more particular and full-orbed picture of God in the Bible. We call the biblical witness” special revelation,” and it is how God reveals himself through his character and acts.

The Bible tells us how God has reached down to save us so that we can be with him forever. It is a complete love story that starts at creation, exposes our sin, shows our desperate need for deliverance, reveals how God rescued us through the death and resurrection of Jesus, and ends with us living with God in a new heaven and a new earth.

The rest of our site presupposes that there is a God who created the universe, that he can be known, and that the primary means he has given for us to understand and know him is his Word, the Bible. This is the starting point for getting to know who God is. It’s an exciting journey, one full of mystery and love. But don’t be embarrassed if you’re still a little unsure about whether God exists, or exactly who he is. Just keep reading the Bible and asking him to reveal himself to you, and he will.

Verse
Acts 17:24-31 NIV

 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 

And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 

God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.
 

‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’

Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone—an image made by human design and skill. 

In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. 

For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.”

Verse
Colossians 1:15-17 NLT

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.
He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.
