About Sovereign Love Series

There are two things we need to know and believe about God: His eternal power and His divine nature. Is God truly who He says He is: Sovereign Love?

Devotional

For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made…
Romans 1:20 HCSB

It seems that the Lord is bringing us as a Body, again and again to consider this wondrous creation, to be stunned by “His eternal power and divine nature.”

In the book The Privileged Planet, I read that there has not been found any other planet in the universe that has the exact elements to sustain life. It takes not only water but also carbon in a precise structure, and now scientists know that earth is the only planet that has those elements. Imagine! This tiny place is where God has chosen to reveal His Son and His glory.

Not only that, but the earth is placed in a unique position where the universe can be studied. It if were placed in a different order in the solar system, it would not be possible to observe the universe in the same way. The author says that it is as if we were put in a front row seat to see the splendor of the heavens.

At no other time in history has God so revealed Himself in nature and the universe.
