Evidence of God's Love...
In A Blade Of Grass
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world
are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his
eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

There is a God and He does indeed love us. Over the years, many hymns have
been written that speak of God's love for us. One famous hymn starts with the line,
"Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so..."

The Bible does indeed tell us of God's love for us, over and over again, throughout
the Old and New Testaments:

John 3:16  [Jesus said]
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life.

Romans 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were
yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Ephesians 2:4  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he
loved us,

Have you ever noticed that the majority of the things found in nature are
green? Is it any coincidence? God created our eyes to see all the beautiful
things He made for us to behold. God created the grass, trees, plants and
leaves to be
green for a reason. Green is the color that our eyes MOST

Psalm 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside
the still waters.

The Lord created the grass, the trees and most plants to be green because He loves
us. There are slight variations of green, but all are shades of a deep, emerald green.
 And He made this emerald green plant life to be the most abundant thing in our
sight when we're outside. Everywhere we look: trees, grass, bushes, hedges, and
yes, even weeds. All shades of green. Imagine if plants were some other color. Can
you imagine purple or red grass and trees all year long? That would be very hard
on the eyes. No, God made all things to compliment the other. Our eyes best see
the abundance of green in all of creation.

Psalm 147:7  
Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the
harp unto our God:
Psalm 147:8  Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for
the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

The Lord, the Most Creative Designer Ever, made brightly-colored flowers and
fruits that add splashes of color when they're in season. And, in the fall, the trees
change color from deep emerald to blazing purples, reds, oranges, and yellows.
Both are refreshing to our eyes. Imagine a world where there are no flowers, and
no changing of the leaves in the fall, before winter comes. God knew exactly how
to create a beautiful world for our eyes to behold!

Evidence of God's Love In A Beam of Light

Psalm 148:3  Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
Psalm 148:4  Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above
the heavens.
Psalm 148:5  Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and
they were created.
Psalm 148:6  He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a
decree which shall not pass.

In order for us to see anything, there must be light to see by. The light we see by is
a tiny part of what scientists call the "Electromagnetic" or EM Spectrum. It's the
term given to all sorts of radiation; x-rays, visible light, microwaves, and radio
waves, to name a few. Each of these forms of radiation differ in their
"wavelength," very similar to the way sounds have different pitches, or frequencies.
The shorter the frequency, the higher the sound. In the same way, radiation has
different "pitches" or frequencies, a few of which we can actually see in the colors
of the visible spectrum, or rainbow.

You probably already know about the visible spectrum of light, which we see as a
rainbow after it rains. The raindrops still high in the atmosphere break up the sun's
visible light and produce the rainbow. Remember that the rainbow is the token of
the covenant the Lord made with Noah and every living creature with him, as a
promise that no more would a flood come upon the earth to destroy all flesh:

Gen 9:12  
And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make
between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual
Gen 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a
covenant between me and the earth.
Gen 9:14  And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that
the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
Gen 9:15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you
and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a
flood to destroy all flesh.
Gen 9:16  And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I
may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living
creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
Gen 9:17  And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I
have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

Before the flood, no rainbow was ever seen in the sky.

Visible light is the part of the EM spectrum that we can see. From the lower red
end through the colors to the purple or violet end, this is the section of the EM
spectrum we can perceive with our eyes. Just as our ears have limits to the
frequencies they can detect (dogs can hear higher frequencies of sound that we
cannot), the same is true with our eyes. In the same way, we can't perceive light
past the ends of the visible light spectrum. Beyond the red end lies the infrared,
which we cannot see. In the other direction, beyond the purple or violet end, lies
the ultraviolet, which we cannot see, either.

But right in the middle of the spectrum lies the wavelength of light which we can
MOST EASILY see. It is the least strenuous color for our eyes to perceive. This
image is the visible light spectrum produced by our sun -- the light we see by when
we're outside. Look carefully at the spectrum, and notice what color lies in the
center...a rich, emerald

Here's something interesting: the Hebrew word for "light" used in Genesis 1:3 has
several meanings: it can mean "illumination," "luminary," "lightning," and
"happiness". What's interesting is that the feminine form of the word means, "herb"
or "plant" as in a "bright plant".

Evidence of God's Love In The Eyes We See With

Isaiah 45:12  I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my
hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

The Lord made our eyes to see only this small section of the entire EM spectrum,
and there's proof of His love in that fact, too. I've already mentioned how the EM
spectrum contains many wavelengths of radiation. Those wavelengths of radiation
which we can see are called visible light. Beyond our range of vision lies many
more forms of radiation. Past the violet end are the wavelengths of x-rays, just like
the kind used in hospitals. At the opposite end of the spectrum, beyond the red
end, are microwaves and radio waves. I'm sure you know how we use these forms
of radiation!

What if we could see beyond visible light?

When the sun goes down, it gets dark outside. Imagine the trouble we'd have if the
Lord made our eyes with the ability to see beyond visible light. We would never get
any rest. We would not be able to sleep. What if we could see everything from
gamma rays and x-rays, visible light, and microwaves and radio waves? It would
never get dark!
We'd never have a moment's peace because of all that
radiation from the stars, not to mention all the television and radio signals
that invisibly fill the air around us.
We'd see a visible flash from the x-ray
machine at the doctor's office. The night sky would be filled with "light," from
every gamma ray and x-ray source that naturally occurs in the heavens. Every heat
source would glow because we would be able to see infrared light. We would most
likely be bathed in a constant fog of light sources, both inside our homes and
outside. Visible light is stopped by the wood and metal of our homes, but gamma
rays are not. Our homes would have to be made from thick plates of lead and other
metals to block the light. Life would be so much more difficult.
How loving and
merciful God is, to have limited our vision to visible light only.

The Lord created light. He created emerald green plants and He created our eyes to
see those plants. There is no coincidence that abundant plant life is the same color
as that which lies in the center of the colors we can see.

Did you know that there's even an emerald green rainbow around God's throne in

Revelation 4:3  
And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine
stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an

Imagine how awesome that rainbow around the Lord's throne must be, if the trees
and grass we see here on Earth are so wonderfully pleasing to look at! Everything
in creation points to an intelligent, loving designer-- not evolution. From the light He
created on the first day, to the plants we see all around us, to the very eyes we see
with, and even in the language of His chosen people, God's love for us is evident.

As much as God loves us, He cannot allow sin in His Holy presence. Sinful man
will never see God-- for sin separates man from God. The only way sinful man can
approach a Holy God is through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. By Jesus'
sacrificial death on the cross, He provided a way for us to spend eternity with Him.
By believing in Jesus, how He took our place on Calvary's hill and rose again on
the third day, one can spend eternity in the presence of the Lord forever. Jesus,
God's Only Begotten Son,  paid the price for our sins.

God made a way for sinners to see Him face to face and to behold His throne and
glory and that emerald rainbow, and be with Him forever. All a person needs to do
is to believe and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior-- that He paid the price
upon the cross for their sins and that He rose again on the third day and He is alive.

Not only did God create the world with beautiful colors for us to see, but He also
desired to redeem fallen, sinful man and therefore God the Father sent His only
begotten Son, Jesus (Yeshua), to die for our sins that we might be born again of
His Spirit and have our sins forgiven. Jesus shed His precious blood shed at
Calvary for our sins. And what a wonderful, loving God we have to provide
beautiful things for us to see and to provide the wonderful,
FREE gift of salvation
for us to receive so that we might spend eternity with Him forever. There is a God
and He does love us so very much!

John 3:16  
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were
yet sinners, Christ died for us.

1John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God
sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
1John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and
sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
