05B NATURE SPEAKS TO US OF GOD
We can learn about God by studying nature. What does nature teach us? For one thing, it teaches us that there really is a God, that God exists.
Abraham Lincoln was the American president who gave freedom to the slaves because he believed that all men are created equal by God and so all men should be free.
One night Abraham Lincoln said to Gilbert Green, then a boy of nineteen: "Gilbert, you have to stand by your printer’s case all day, and I have to sit all day. Let us take a walk."
As they walked along a country road, Lincoln turned his eyes toward the heavens full of stars and told Gilbert their names and their distance from us and the swiftness of their motion. "I never behold them," Lincoln said, "that I do not feel that I do not feel that I am looking in the face of God. I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God."
Truly the things about us speak to us and tell us there is a God.
An African youth from the Gold Coast was listening to a discussion on the possibility of finding God in nature.
"Yes," he agreed, "you can find God in nature, but you can only find the nature of God in the Bible."
How true! Through nature we know that God exists, but we can only discover what God is like by studying the Bible, for in the Bible God reveals Himself more fully than in nature.
