Always Here

Here in Wisconsin, leaves are already beginning to change from summer green into the reds, yellows, and oranges of autumn. It is a wonderful thing to see each year and a reminder of how time continues season to season, year to year. According to scientists, leaves are green due to the chlorophyll pigment they contain. During the summer, while food production is highest, the leaves contain more chlorophyll and as fall comes they lose that chlorophyll and the pigments that remain determine the leaf’s color. These pigments are there all along, they are just overshadowed by the high amount of chlorophyll in the leaf. In a way, we fail to see the other greens because green is in the way.

Mankind’s relationship with God is the same way. We fail to “see” God because we see the things around us instead. Yet God is near us and wants us to know him. We need to stop seeing the things of the world and seek Him. I leave you with the following two passages of scripture to dwell upon. Please think of them as you enjoy the fall colors.

 

Acts 17:26-28

And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’

 

Romans 1:18-21

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
