When my husband and I left Home Depot, I could not resist the urge to take pictures of the beautiful sunset. It was superb, fast changing, and eye-catching. We do live on a wonderful planet–a terrific round world God planned for man.
Think about it. God placed the first man and woman in a wonderful garden. And from that sinless setting, Adam and Eve watched as the evening sky burst into intense colors, probably more tremendous than we have ever seen. For a segment of time, the earth was perfect. In the cool of the evening, the first humans walked with God, faultless and flawless.
Deep within each human there lingers a desire to be near God–to experience the perfection of a complete “oneness” with our creator. But sin cut a gaping hole in the very depths of our human existence. We are not perfect, although we may try to pretend we are without blemish. Got knows the stain of sin that lies within us. But He loves us. He sent his Son as a sacrifice because of our bent toward sinning. And even with all the sin in the world, God continues to show us the canvas of life, splashed with pictures of promise. The beauty of a sunset is something we cannot ignore.
But how many people will stare at a wondrous sunset, but never welcome the artist–the Creator of the world?
