Awesome Creation

"Man has made many machines, complex and cunning, but which of them indeed rivals the workings of his heart?" -Pablo Casals

This quote came across my eDesk this morning and got me to reflecting, with awe, about God's creation. Whether you embrace theistic evolution or merely accept the idea that God formed Adam out of the dust, you have to agree that we are wonderfully made.. humanity is an amazing creation. When I think about the functioning of our hearts and brains.. I am simply in awe of it all. It reminds me of this passage:

Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:26-27)
Made in God's image.. no wonder our hearts are without rival!


  1. AMEN Bob. Not only are we made in His image to begin with at Birth but then He recreates us at our New Birth, gives us a New heart and conforms us into His image. What a Savior!!!! He who was The Word made flesh!!!

  2. Great thought. We are indeed wonderfully made!

  3. The study of science is rightly the study of the awesome creativity of God! What a system!

    There's a related Bible passage that rocked me when I was getting my Biology degree (although you might not know it, since you have the "skinny Bible!"):

    Wisdom 13: 1-9

    For all men who were ignorant of God were foolish by nature;
    and they were unable from the good things that are seen to know Him who exists, nor did they recognize the Craftsman while paying heed to His works;

    but they supposed that either fire or wind or swift air, or the circle of the stars, or turbulent water, or the luminaries of heaven were the gods that rule the world.

    If through delight in the beauty of these things men assumed them to be gods, let them know how much better than these is their Lord,
    for the Author of Beauty created them.

    And if men were amazed at their power and working, let them perceive from them how much more powerful is He who formed them.

    For from the greatness and beauty of created things comes a corresponding perception of their Creator.

    Yet these men are little to be blamed, for perhaps they go astray
    while seeking God and desiring to find Him.

    For as they live among His works they keep searching, and they trust in what they see, because the
    things that are seen are beautiful.

    Yet again, not even they are to be excused; for if they had the power to know so much that they could investigate the world, how did they fail to find sooner the Lord of these things?
