Maker of Life – The Father Of Jesus

 

Let us bow down in worship. Let us kneel before our Maker. Psalm 95:6

The Manual of Life begins by identifying The Manufacturer! “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

The Maker’s fingerprints are on everything! However, His crowning masterpiece is humankind: “God created human beings godlike, reflecting His own nature.(Genesis 1:27)

 So, you are NOT the result of a cosmic crapshoot! Neither are you a mere ape-upgrade! “People of God, is He not your Father, your Creator, Who formed you?” (Deuterononmy 32:6) 

 YOU are a child of the Creator Father!

The Corvette is the first American sports car. It originated in the mind of Harley Earl in 1951. Shortly thereafter his mental blue print took shape in an actual-size clay model. To one of His kids the Maker said: “Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

You were intricately and meticulously designed. “A fertilized egg is about the size of a pin head. Yet, it contains information equivalent to about six billion DNA ‘chemical letters.’ This is enough information to fill 1000 books, 500 pages thick with print so small you would need a microscope to read it!.” (The Origin of the Universe, p 1)


You are God’s masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10) … nothing less than a work of art! You may neither think nor feel that way about yourself; but remember, the Maker does not make junk!

Comedian Billy Crystal coined the line: “Darling, you look absolutely marvelous!” In reflecting about His Father’s creativity David said this about himself: “You formed me in my mother’s womb. Body and soul, I am marvelously made!” (Psalm 139:14)

The Maker designed you for fulfillment.
“You will feel the greatest pleasure when
who God made you to be is fully developed and expressed!

(About You, p 29)

Destined for utter satisfaction

“I am considering not how, but why, God makes each soul unique. If He had no use for all these differences, I do not see why He should have created more souls than one. Be sure that the ins and outs of your individuality are no mystery to Him; and one day they will no longer be a mystery to you. The mold in which a key is made would be a strange thing, if you had never seen a key: and the key itself a strange thing if you had never seen a lock. Your soul has a curious shape because it is a hollow made to fit a particular swelling in the infinite contours of the Divine substance, or a key to unlock one of the doors in the house with many mansions. For it is not humanity in the abstract that is to be saved, but you—you, the individual reader, John Stubbs or Janet Smith. Blessed and fortunate creature, your eyes shall behold Him and not another’s. All that you are, sins apart, is destined, if you will let God have His good way, to utter satisfaction.” —C.S. Lewis
