Day or night, we are here above you. We speak a universal language understandable to all people, and we share our message with every part of the world.
But we aren’t really interested in talking about ourselves.
It is our pleasure and joy to serve our Maker for your benefit and His glory. He has perfectly equipped us for our tasks.
One of your poets once said it this way:
“The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.”
We were here before you were, but our Maker was here before us and will be here when we’re gone. For you, He has us mark the days and seasons. We give light for you to see, warmth for your comfort, and energy for your food to grow.
He asked us to tell you of His power and His love for you. We are not here by accident, and neither are you. Whoever you are, the sun rises for you and the rain falls in its time. He ensures it.
The Apostle Paul says that God’s “invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.”
Today, rejoice in the regularity of the heavens, which declare to all people in all times and places that the eternal God cares about them.
