We are continuing our study through the Book of Romans. Currently we are in Romans 1:20 speaking to the invisible qualities or attributes of God. If you have missed any of our conversations on this subject you can catch up with them on THE ROAD THROUGH ROMANS PAGE.
Romans 1:20 reads,
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
We have spoken to God’s: Wisdom, Infinitude, Sovereignty, Holiness, Trinity and Omniscience.
Today we are speaking to God’s faithfulness. Watch this.
But where does creation display God’s faithfulness? In lots of places. Faithfulness itself is the idea that God functions according to certain character traits that do not change. These traits make God dependable or faithful. Because God is like this He has set in motion a creation that also operates according to certain “character traits” or laws that do not change. For instance:
The law of gravity is something we can depend on. What goes up must come down.
The law of seed time and harvest is something we can depend on. Summer will follow winter. Winter will follow summer and so on and so on…
The creation reveals to us that the character of the One behind it must be steady and faithful.
