Having spent most of the evening trying to get people to perform hymns like music with expression, I also spent sometime today trying to convince people that God’s world is wonderful. One question was “isn’t heaven going to be boring?” – I could say I have never been there so I couldn’t tell you, but if you look at the extreme diversity in nature, the fantastic design that we are only just starting to comprehend its complexity. Then you realise what an awesome God we have.
A program that was on the other night talked about how scientist were trying to engineer goats to create milk that had the genes of spiders so that they could create a thread in the lab so this could be used in all sorts of ways to save lives.
what about worms that seem to survive even when I have accidentally chopped them in half with a spade. Do both parts operate separately?
Birds that have a built in compass to tell them the direction to home.
The diverse colours.
The huge uses of fungus and plants to heal and use for our benefit.
If a God can create all these things, and all the diverse galaxies, He can create a wonderfully exciting heaven that will be beyond compare.
All these things live in a harmonious relationship that is very delicate but God directed, and we need to respect nature and each other in love.
Praise to the Lord for His Love and Faithfulness
A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath day.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
3 On an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
4 For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
5 O Lord, how great are Your works!
Your thoughts are very deep.
6 A senseless man does not know,
Nor does a fool understand this.
7 When the wicked spring up like grass,
And when all the workers of iniquity flourish,
It is that they may be destroyed forever.
8 But You, Lord, are on high forevermore.
9 For behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For behold, Your enemies shall perish;
All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10 But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox;
I have been anointed with fresh oil.
11 My eye also has seen my desire on my enemies;
My ears hear my desire on the wicked
Who rise up against me.
12 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those who are planted in the house of the Lord
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
15 To declare that the Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
