We Know the Artist

zebrasThe heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or words; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. [Psalm 19:1-4 (NLT)]

Recently, I toured an art museum with a docent who told me about each artist’s life and work. Knowing something about the individual artists helped me to better appreciate their art.

Aren’t we fortunate that we know the artist who scattered the stars, painted the stripes on the zebra, sculpted the Rocky Mountains, fashioned the delicate hummingbird, and handcrafts each flake of snow? When we observe God’s artistry, we’re doubly blessed. Not only do we know something about His majestic work, but we also know the Creator personally!

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. [Romans 1:20 (NLT)]
