Rabbi Schneider - Beautifully Created
Beloved, God's presence is manifest through the beauty of His creation. The scripture tells us that everyone's without excuse in terms of acknowledging and worshiping God, because the scripture says that God's invisible attributes and eternal glory are clearly seen in what He's made. I want you to consider this, if you can sense a little bit the type of atmosphere that I'm sitting in right now, I'm surrounded by a lush forest, beautiful water, a river in front of me, a stream behind me, gorgeous pine trees all around me, a beautiful blue sky above with the sun shining down. I mean this creation is so, it's so powerful it almost takes your breath away. So think about the fact that God is the one that created all this lush and magnificent beauty.
Now take it this direction, the same God that created this beauty that I'm surrounded by, is the one that created you and I in His own image. You know what that tells us? That the beauty that we can clearly see in God's creation and that you're witnessing right now through this broadcast, that beauty beloved ones, is in you and I; because the one that created all this beauty created you and I and He created us in His own image. You are beautiful to God. You and I are so much more valuable and so much more beautiful than we can comprehend. There is something so beautiful in us that's even vastly more beautiful than this creation that I'm in right now.
So I want to encourage you today. Believe you're beautiful, know that God loves you. And because of the blood of Yeshua, there's no condemnation on you. Your sin is removed. You're beautiful to God. His love's been poured out upon you and now He wants our heart to rise back to Him and love Him back. This is Rabbi Schneider saying to you baruch Hashem, God loves you and shalom.
