Although Earth Day was created to promote an environmental agenda I do not subscribe to, it doesn’t hurt to pause and reflect on what we of God in creation. Romans 1: 19-23 instructs:
19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 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. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
As I reflect on God’s “eternal power and divine nature” I am reminded of Psalm 24:1-2:
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,
the world and those who dwell therein,
2 for he has founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the rivers.
One of the great things about landscape photography is the inherent reminder of God’s power as revealed through creation and nature. I assembled a set of photographs form the the last year that reflect where I have observed God’s divine power revealed through creation.
