God Is (1/12/2020)
"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
That there are some in our world who deny the existence of a Higher Power defies all logic in view of the obvious evidence that exists. Something doesn’t come from nothing in the natural world.
In this passage in Romans, Paul has set out to prove the absolute existence of God in order to convince all—Jews and Gentiles—the need for them to obey the gospel. He points to the evidence of God surrounding us—things we can see all around us indicate the existence of an all-powerful, supernatural Creator.
Those who defy such strong evidence, Paul says, are without excuse. Through faith, we trust the evidence and we know God exists. Such knowledge demands not only acceptance but submission to this Power.
