THERE IS GOD
Rom. 1:20 For the invisible things of Him, both His eternal power and divine characteristics, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being perceived by the things made, so that they would be without excuse.
God Declared through the Universe
Scientists have explored our physical universe for a long time. Through their studies they have discovered that our universe is an orderly system that is full of design. Look at the sky above you at night. Astronomers estimate that there are more than one hundred billion stars in our galaxy, and that there may be billions of galaxies in the universe. Each star we see represents a solar system in the universe. Our own solar system has the sun as the center, and it has nine planets revolving around it in clocklike precision. The earth, as one of the planets, speeds through space at 67,000 miles an hour and takes 365 days to circle the sun. This fact is astounding when one considers that a train traveling at one-one thousandth of this speed will many times miss its schedule.
The Bible tells us that God’s “eternal power and divine characteristics” are seen through the creation (Rom. 1:20). As a painting displays the characteristics of the painter, so the Creator’s attributes are manifested through His created universe.
If a Man Wants to Worship God and Contact Him, He Must Use His Spirit
His intention is that we would know Him. God has no intention to hide Himself. He intends that man would come to know Him first as the Creator and then as his God and his Father. God intends for man to worship Him.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit (John 4:24). If a person wants to receive radio waves, he must use a radio receiver. If a man wants to receive a telephone call, he must pick up the telephone receiver. In the same way, if a man wants to worship God and contact Him, he must use his spirit. One cannot hear color with his ears, nor can one see music with his eyes. We need the right organ for the right substance. God is Spirit and is not anything material. This is why we must not worship Him with anything material, but must worship Him with our spirit.
Calling on the Name of the Lord Jesus
The way to use our spirit is to pray by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus (Rom. 10:12-13). If we will open our mouth and our heart and will pray to God, our spirit will touch Him, and God will be real to us.
