Devotion for Thursday after Ash Wednesday

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

~ Romans 1:18-20

Those of us introduced to God through our families or friends are extremely blessed. However, God has revealed Himself even to those who have never heard the Gospel. Look at the sun, the moon, and the stars. See the beauty of flowers and hear the delightful songs of birds. Feel a gentle breeze or a soothing rain. Experience the miracle of a baby. How can anyone enjoy God’s creation without seeing the power and majesty behind the creation? No one has any excuse for not recognizing that there is an almighty deity. Those who has never heard of Jesus may not know the full Gospel of salvation, but they can certainly see the hand of God at work.

Lord God, Almighty Creator, thank You that You have revealed Yourself to everyone in Your creation. All we have to do is to look around us at what You have made. Thank You that even more than simply creating the world and the people, You love each one of Your children so much that You sent Jesus to redeem us from our sins. In His name I pray. Amen.

These daily devotions are available in a book The Grace of God, with all profits donated to Love for the Least to share the compassion of Christ with an unreached world.
