God’s Magnificent Jewelry!

Those bright constellations — Christ created them. Those burning suns — Christ kindled them. Those snow wreathed alps, those cloud-capped mountains — Christ raised them. Those verdant valleys — Christ spread them.

That blushing rose…

  • that graceful lily,
  • that exquisite fern,
  • that curious sea flower tossed upon the shore,
  • that wayside violet that screens the dewdrop from the sun,
  • that winding stream,
  • that leafy grove —

Christ formed and penciled them all.

Yes, Christ is the one who clad that magnificent landscape with its robe of living green; scented the air with its fragrance, and hollowed out the depth of that, dimpled with beauty by the gentle breeze — or awesome in its grandeur, when trod by the storm.

Truly, He has made everything beautiful in its time. Oh! I delight to see the Incarnate God, who died to save — scattering from the opulence of His own boundless resources — all this jewelry; making man’s sinful home so rich, so lovely, so attractive!

Psalm 19:1-4

“The heavens tell of the glory of God.
The skies display His marvelous craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make Him known.
They speak without a sound or a word;
their voice is silent in the skies;
yet their message has gone out to all the earth,
and their words to all the world.”

(Octavius Winslow) HT: Grace Gems

Truly, He has made everything beautiful in its time.
Oh! I delight to see the Incarnate God, who died to
save — scattering from the opulence of His own
boundless resources — all this jewelry; making
man’s sinful home so rich, so lovely, so attractive
