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.
I imagine, “Two hundred years ago, my grandfather was doing chores when he found a little brown egg, he picked it up and pushed underneath the fretting-setting hen. A few months later the egg has changed from liquid glob form to a full grown rooster that rears back and crows morning and evening, just like the rooster did a few thousand years earlier when Peter swore he did not know Jesus Christ! A very similar rooster used to wake the ark with his herald of “cock-a-doodle-doo,” I can imagine 600 year-old Noah, groaning in his sleep when that noisy old rooster starting crowing.”
Now many days later a similar scene breaks the morning light at my house. The roosters sitting on the fence beside the shed rear back and blast forth announcing the grandeur of God’s eternal power and divine nature. God put information into those first chickens, information that still lives on today. When I hear the rooster crow, I am reminded of a wonderful Creator who also put information into me. This information however, was ruined through sin and I need an injection of further information if I will ever learn how to truly live the way God meant for me to live. If I am going to embody His image in a way that glorifies Him, then I need His Holy Spirit to penetrate my heart with His divine nature. So that my life might blast forth God’s glory to the world around me, like the rooster proclaims God’s glory from the fence!
Do you see God’s attributes in the things that have been made? Do you see God’s divine nature in your own life? Do you embody the beautiful nature of God? You will not do it on your own.
