God gives us volume, not nature. Many talk about the vast expanse of lifeless space in terms of wonder & awe. And how much more wonder again is there in living things on one planet that shares its volume amidst the land, sea & sky.
God gives us love too, in terms of volume or cost it cannot be fully measured or appreciated, but by grace we begin to survey God’s mercy across time & space. Scripture reveals judgement & mercy to the human family. Redemption comes, we are not alone in our suffering.
We cannot deny that the world is corrupted by the weight & intrusion of sin, nor should we deny the Saviour who came at great cost to save us from its deadly grasp. Only Jesus can truly save, for now & all eternity.
