The glory of God in creation – general revelation

The glory of God in Christ – special revelation

The link between the two is the glory of God, shining through the written Word of God.

Creation shows us the greatness of God’s power. Christ shows us the greatness of God’s love.

In creation, we see the beauty of nature. In Christ, we see the beauty of holiness.

How are we to move beyond appreciating the beauty of nature to living the life of holiness? We need to turn, again and again, to the written Word of God. Read God’s Word. Listen to what the Lord is saying to you. The main thing that God says to us is this – He points us to Jesus, His Son; Jesus, our Saviour; Jesus – “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). As we read the Scriptures, we learn that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1 Timothy 1:15), and we rejoice in the Lord. We give thanks for His love and His salvation, and we give all the glory to Him.
