The God who made the world and all things in it...


The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; neither is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all life and breath and all things; and He made from one, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your poets have said, 'For we also are His offspring.'

Being then the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.

Acts 17:24-31

Beautiful flowers! But, uh... are you sure God made bugs? I thought they were more of a curse from The Fall of Man. ;)

Susan, that is such a poignant reminder. I am truly amazed by our creator God, and the way he crafted everything down to the minutest detail! In today's sermon we were reminded of the part of that passage where it says he is not far from us. Hallelujah for that!

Beautiful. In so many ways.
