What can you learn about an artist from his art, musicians from their music, or an architect from her building? You might marvel at their creativity or skill or wisdom; you can study their work and learn much about them. But imagine walking through an art museum, pointing to a famous piece and saying, 'I know the artist.' Or going to a concert, pointing to the stage and saying, 'I know them.' Or pointing to a towering structure and saying, 'I know the person who designed this.' There’s a big difference between knowing ABOUT someone and actually KNOWING them, isn’t there?
In the same way, you can know ABOUT God, the Creator, from His creation. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands." (Psalm 19:1) But oh, to KNOW Him! What a wonder to point to a sunset and say, 'I know the Artist,' to a chirping bird and say, 'I know the Composer,' or to a sonogram and say, 'I know the Designer.' Ah, it gets personal with that last one, doesn’t it? The Creator is your Creator. GET TO KNOW YOUR CREATOR, who makes Himself known to you, personally, through the Bible. GET TO KNOW YOUR CREATOR and see how He stepped into His creation, ruined by man’s sin, to save the likes of you and me. GET TO KNOW YOUR CREATOR…and give thanks.
