Splendor in the Ruin

Whose fingertips sprinkled the heavens with the brilliant glitter of planets and stars? Whose word gave oceans the sculpted edge of their boundary? Whose artistry carved the mountain peaks and scooped out valleys beneath? The Eternal One is who calculates the patterns of the clouds, quantifies thoughts more than the grains of sands, and assigns a number to each hair on a head. (Psalm 139:17-18; Luke 12:7)

Whose masterpiece is on continuous display the universe over? Whose wisdom is woven in the array of particles fashioned from dust into DNA, from language into cell structure? Whose infinity has quartered the time of seasons? Whose Spirit gives wind its chase? (Proverbs 8:22-31; Daniel 2:21; Ecclesiastes 1:6)

Whose infancy and reign orchestrates the anthem of heavenly Hallelujahs on behalf of a creature lower than the angels? Whose power thwarts the gates of hell’s destiny of death? No less than the Redeemer who subjected Himself to its shadow of darkness. (Luke 2:13-14; Revelations 19:1-8; Hebrews 2:5-9; Matthew 16:18; Romans 6:9; Job 19:25 & Isaiah 44:6-8).

The Holy One, it is He who has pursued you. For after the great schism of humanity’s riveted rebellion from holiness and a rogue to purity’s freedom, but God. Yahweh – the LORD came to walk, as every day before, and summoned (or cried out) to His beloved. And so began the history of our human race. Our relationship with Jesus Christ is not just found in an outward concept of God to which we proclaim. Rather, our relationship with Jesus Christ penetrates to an inward intimacy of a union bound by a fellowship of trust, obedience, and faith articulated from the infinite mind of the Holy Trinity. (John 3:16; 1 John 4:19; Genesis 3:7-9).
