Pictures Of God

May 18, 2012

Steve DeWitt says in Eyes Wide Open:

What creation does say, however, is glorious and elicits questions that prime our hearts to receive Christ. Our hearts ask, Who could do this? If God can do all of this, how wonderful and desirable must He be? If God made me, wouldn’t He care for me? The person who asks these questions is on the path toward the One to whom all beauty is intended to lead. Since everything God created is theology (“God-knowledge”), all creation is a treasure hunt in which God has left clues—essentially pictures of Himself. Each picture is intentionally pleasurable so as to increase our desire for more. For someone more.

Make today a treasure hunt! We love treasure. God is the only treasure that really satisfies.
