mid-week apologetics booster (5-4-2017)

Good morning y’all,

Well, I guess I’m being influenced by the family guests I have in from Arkansas J  We’ve been taking a whirlwind tour of Arizona, hiking on South Mountain, going to Sedona, Slide Rock, Jerome and eating at Rustler’s Roost so far!  Tomorrow, we’re heading up to Prescott to go canoeing on Watson lake and possibly to walk around Lynx lake.  On the way out, they’re going to visit the Grand Canyon on their own.  As I see all of these sights along with them and see their delight in our beautiful state, I’m reminded of what the Apostle Paul told us so long ago:

What may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.  Romans 1:19-20

When people ask for evidence for God, we can immediately point them to the creation.  God is the best explanation for the beauty and design we see in nature.  And because of this, we praise His name:

You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.  Revelation 4:11

The righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart; devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death. Isaiah 57:1-2

Blessings to y’all
