“Then the one seated on the throne said, ‘Look!  I’m making all things new.’

He also said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’”

Revelation 21:5

    The changing of the seasons each year give us a beautiful example of God’s creative ability.  The breathtaking evidence of God’s creation is all around us, if we only take the time to look.  We are now entering Fall, the time of year depicting some of the most incredible sunsets and the trees displaying their bright array of colors.  We watch green leaves turn red and yellow, glimmering gold in the sunlight.  And what a beautiful sight to watch the blue sky turn pink, then a deep rose color, as the final sun rays streak across the sky.  Slowly at first, the glowing sun begins to recede behind the horizon, and then all at once, it slips out of sight, and the sky gracefully fades to black.  Wow!  What a glorious display!

    It’s at times like these when we realize our God is near because we can see His handiwork on the earth and in the sky.  If God can use colors and light to paint the sky with such splendor, and if God can take the green trees and display such shimmering beauty, perhaps He can use us, in our mortal imperfect state, to do His work; to reach out and share His never-changing love with those we meet; and to care for our neighbor in their time of need — even if it means stepping outside our normal comfort zone.  

    Jesus said, “Those who believe in me will do the things that I am doing.  They will do even greater things because I am going to the Father.” God is the source of creativity.  There’s no limit to what He can do.  There’s also no limit to what we can do thru Jesus.  And if God’s that creative with the changing of the seasons and the things of earth, just think of what He is doing in Heaven!  I can hardly wait to get there.  How about you?  Enjoy your Fall with God’s handiwork on display.  Take a little time to bask in the glow.  See you in Church on Sunday!
