CREATOR



 

About five-hundred years ago, Michelangelo painted the ceiling of the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel. For four years, the great artist labored more than sixty feet above the floor. What he created was a masterpiece, admired by an estimated five-million visitors per year.

 

The faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln were carved into Mount Rushmore by Gutzon Borglum and a team of four-hundred laborers. Work began in 1927 and was completed fourteen years later. The faces of the great presidents, each about sixty-feet tall, can be seen from miles away.

 

No body goes to Rome or to the Black Hills to see these fabulous works of art and concludes that the masterpieces were created by chance, by millions of years of erosion or by various gases mixing together … shazam… poof!

 

Nope!

 

Artwork is done by artists, not by the processes of evolution. Likewise, creation demands a Creator.

 

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the surface of the watery depths, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, ‘Let there be…’ ” (Genesis 1:1–3).

“All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created” (John 1:3).

 

Beginning with nothing, God created everything.

 

Thank you, Lord!

 

“… think on these things” (Philippians 4:8, KJV).
