Our Pastor is taking us through the beginning of Genesis, the account of the six days when God created. To accompany the series, the worship band has introduced some new songs. The lyrics of these songs are so powerful, so wonderful. Here is a sampling:
How could I say there is no God
When all around creation calls?
A singing bird, a mighty tree;
The vast expanse of open sea.
I love to stand at ocean’s shore
And feel the thundering breakers roar;
To walk through golden fields of grain
‘Neath endless blue horizon’s frame.
(“Creation Calls” by Brian Doerksen)
It’s falling from the clouds, a strange and lovely sound;
I hear it in the thunder and the rain.
It’s ringing in the skies, like cannons in the night,
As the music of the universe plays; it’s singing
You are Holy, great and mighty;
The moon and the stars, declare who You are.
I’m so unworthy, but still You love me.
Forever my heart, will sing of how great You are.
(“Cannons” by Phil Wickham)
Our Pastor made a great point this morning: God created everything for us. God said it was good. He wants us to discover and enjoy what He made so we can discover and enjoy Him. He wants us to know Him.
“Ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.”
