From Your Pastor's Heart

February 18, 2024

 

This summer (June and July) we will be having another special emphasis during the Bible study hour.  This year we will be focusing on the sovereignty of God (and what an appropriate thing that is in light of our current world situation).  One of our sessions will be on the sovereignty of God in creation. Essentially, God did not need any help when He created this world.  In fact, that is one of the most profound arguments for the existence of God.  Only a sovereign God could create the universe in which we live.

 

We’ve seen that very theme in Romans chapter one, and in fact, today I want to go back to a key verse in this chapter and follow this argument from the Apostle Paul.  Romans 1:20 says, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”

 

Remember, this is the inspired Word of God.  The sovereign God is speaking through the Apostle Paul to declare that no one has any excuse for failing to see His existence and His attributes through what He has created.  There is a Master Designer, and there is no other possible explanation for the created order.  Of course, Paul goes on to say that there are those who simply reject this truth, but for those who are honest, the testimony of creation is irrefutable.  This is where we will focus our attention this morning.
