Different Vantage Points

Re:Verse reading–Romans 1:18-32 (day five)

Last summer I traveled to Alaska with our Chapel Singers. One of the highlights was a trip to Denali National Park. Our travel literally took us around what is now called Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley). There were several places to stop and see this magnificent landmark. Each one provided a different, yet amazing view of this mountain. The different vantage points when combined, gave me a better understanding and appreciation of the vastness and beauty of whole mountain. If I had only seen one side or perspective, it would have been spectacular, yet I would have missed seeing and experiencing SO much more.

In Romans chapter 1, Paul shares glimpses or snapshots of God’s character and nature. (Same Holy and Loving God- different vantage points) God’s Power (v. 16), God’s Righteousness (v. 17), God’s Wrath (v. 18), God’s Glory (v. 20).

If we don’t continue to observe and be in awe of the many facets of God’s Nature and Character, we will miss seeing and experiencing SO much more of Him.
