Romans 1:19-20 (Revelation)

Bible Passage

For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his 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. — Romans 1:19-20

Quote

"…the Biblical narrative tells the story of the triune God who created all of reality (visible and invisible) out of nothing for his own glory, the creation of humankind in his image and covenant, the transgression of that covenant, and the surprising announcement of his gracious promise to send a Savior.” — Michael Horton, The Christian Faith, p. 41.

Steps to Take

1. Reflect: In Romans 1:19-20 we read that creation itself is proof of God’s eternal power and divine nature and people can clearly see these truths about God whether or not they acknowledge them.

2. Answer: Why did God make the world? Why is it fitting that his creation should bring him glory? (See Ps. 72:19; Rom. 11:36; Phil. 2:9-11.)

3. Remember: Christians must avoid the errors of pantheism and panentheism and instead understand the critical distinction between God and his creation.
