What do so many people feel so good when they’re in nature? Well, we know it’s not just nature — it’s God’s creation!
Poet Robinson Jeffers says that God’s “signature is the beauty of things.”
In this sermon from July 11, 2021, I take us through Paul and Barnabas’ memorable visit to Lystra in Acts 14:8-20, and discuss how:
(a) the fact that there is a creation is evidence that there is a Creator;
(b) creation reveals the kindness of it’s Creator; and
(c) our Creator cares for his creatures, including those who don’t know him yet, which is why we try to identify common ground with them (like Paul did).
The YouTube version of the sermon is here, and the audio-only download is underneath. Also provided is a link to the extra background material called “growing deeper” as a part of The Pulse Podcast.
As mentioned, you can also access the extra background content as a part of The Pulse Podcast with Matthew Ruttan by going here (or by finding it wherever you subscribe to podcasts — iTunes (Apple), Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher or TuneIn). It’s called “Creation and evidence of a kind Creator.”
