12/27 Revelation 4:11

11 "Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created."

We really only have three possibilities for the existence of the universe. It is eternal, it came from nothing, or eternal God created it. If matter was from eternity past, science cannot explain why there is energy in the universe. Energy dissipates over time, so an eternal universe would run out of energy. Science has for a long time been convinced that something cannot come from nothing. That leaves us with eternal God. It still takes faith to believe in each idea because no one has been in eternity past as a witness.

If God created all things, then all power comes from Him. He deserves the glory and honor for the wonder and magnitude of creation. When man describes the intricacies and beauty of creation as a cosmic accident, he not only insults our intelligence, but he insults God, too.

The reason a person so desperately searches for another reason for life is because he or she knows that acknowledging a Creator means we are all accountable to that Creator. A Creator means there are absolutes, right and wrong, and good and evil. To defy one's own good Creator is evil. The existence of the Creator means we will one day give an account to Him for the life He so graciously gave us.

Consider: Are you giving the Creator the glory and honor He deserves for the world you see around you, everything you have, and even your very life?
