God’s Greatest Miracle

“What therefore you unknowingly worship, I proclaim to you, the God who made the world and all that is in it, the Lord of Heaven and Earth...He fixed the ordered that people might seek God, even perhaps grope for Him and find Him, though indeed He is not far from any one of us." Acts 17:23-27

Paul said these words in Athens where he noticed so many temples dedicated to idols. One altar caught his eye, however, an altar TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Paul wanted to introduce this unknown God to the Athenians. And he chose the Areopagus, a prominent rock outcropping in Acropolis, Greece, in which to do it. We may not be an eloquent speaker like Paul, we may not be a missionary going to far reaches of the world, but we do have access to a modern day Areopagus where we can share about the goodness and greatness of God. The internet is where we can make our voices heard above the fake news, the confusion, the troubles and headaches of this world. 

Creation is God's first missionary. All of creation shouts out about God's majesty and power! “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

 “Men go abroad to wonder 

at the heights of mountains, 

at the huge waves of the sea, 

at the long courses of the rivers, 

at the vast compass of the ocean, 

at the circular motions of the stars, 

and they pass by themselves without wondering.”

St. Augustine

 We, our human body, our minds, our soul, are God's greatest miracles!

I can't say it better than Louie Giglio in this video:

It's worth watching! At the end of the video he talks about how we are "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14), how we are made of 75 trillion cells, and that every 3 seconds, 50,000 cells die and are replaced by brand new cells! And how LAMININE, a cell adhesion molecule looks like a cross under the microscope. That is what holds our cells together, our body together! 

It's in the form of a cross! 

God left His signature on our bodies! Isn't that usually what an artist does?
