vs. 5-6 Tell us about Jesus.
vs. 5 Describes Jesus as our Bridegroom. He loves us and wants to make us His. He even rejoices in the “race” set before Him that He is to fulfill in order to accomplish our “wedding”.
vs. 6 Jesus was from the beginning and before the beginning; He is all encompassing-GOD-“nothing hid from“-no one escapes their need of the Saviour–>no other way. No one is in such a position , so great, mighty or in a state that is too hard or too terrible for Jesus’s “heat” to reach. He also knows and sees all – nothing hid.
Visable as you enter my home, my library table is a source of pleasure for me. I enjoy dressing it to fit the season or using it to showcase vacations like a 3D scrapebook.
vs. 2 All of Creation is God’s contact with us; He has gone to great lengths to give us undeniable evidence that He is here and that He is GOD! “day & night” – 24/7 – without end God is calling to us.
vs. 3-4 This revelation is to all-“All of Creation is groaning”(Rom.8:22) awaiting God’s return. The “lower life forms” know God, and are grateful to Him for His provision.
The lions know they are fed by Him, the ants know they are led by Him, even the flowers know they are dressed by Him. Only humans are creatures so “intelligent” that they have become ignorant of Him. But God’s declaration of Himself to us by His ‘handiwork’ leaves us without excuse-Romans 10:18&1:20)
God also gives us a wonderful picture of His Son in this Creation revelation. To earth, the sun is at the apex of the handiwork of the firmament. More on this in my next post.
