We all toil during the day. When the clock strikes signaling that our shift is over, we ran as fast as we could to get out of work. We walk hurriedly to our car, to the bus stop or to the train station. Our eyes glued to our smartphones, tablets or an e-reader. We barely strike a conversation with the person next to us. How many of us do ever look up and watch the sky changes it’s color as the sun sets down at the western sky.
As the sun sets down, that is a means of grace. It is a sacrament. It is the visible sign of an invisible grace. It is a symbol for mediating God’s grace to your heart. ( The Meaning of Sunset by by Charles E. Jefferson (1860-1937). It is impossible for man to make sunsets only God can do it and to behold its beauty everyday, free of charge, is already a living example of God’s wondrous grace.
Sunsets are miracle. What is a miracle? Wikipedia’s meaning of Miracle is an event not ascribable to human power or the laws of nature and consequently attributed to a supernatural, especially divine.
It points us back to our creator, no human being can orchestrate something grand and amazing. Only God. If you love nature, you can not deny the existence of God.
It is my hope that even in our daily activities no matter how busy we are, let us pause for a moment to appreciate what God has created for us. As we marvel at the grace and miracle of sunsets, let us take time to worship the one who created us…GOD.
Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy.
