It says in The Bible: “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” (Psalm 19)
When we examine the world, the beauty, order and intricacy of nature floods our senses. We can spend a whole lifetime studying one animal, one plant, one cell even. And when we turn our gaze on the farthest reaches of space we find the universe confounding us with awe-inspiring scale and unimaginable power.
Wherever we go we are confronted with displays of glory that demand more of us than we are able to give. Why do we waste our time with petty distractions and self-indulgences? Why do we ever do anything wrong when we are placed in such a setting? Looking into our own hearts is like going to see the crown jewels and instead of finding the Koh-i-Nur diamond we see that someone has swapped it for an old apple core. Why do we live like moral paupers when everything about the universe points to the fact that we are supposed to be the very crown of creation?
This is the knot that Christ came to untie. To restore sight to the blind, to give freedom to those in prison. Put your faith in Jesus Christ, repent and be baptised, and your chains will fall off and you will rise and walk with the one who is truly King.
