Nature God’s First Missionary

Nature is God’s first missionary. Where there is no Bible, there are sparkling stars. Where there are no preachers, there are springtimes. Where there is no testament of scripture, there is the testament of changing seasons and breath-stealing sunsets. If a person has nothing but nature, then nature is enough to reveal something about God. As Paul says: “The basic reality of God is plain enough open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what there eyes can’t see: eternal power, for instance and the mystery of His divine being” (Romans. 1:20 MSG).  – Max Lucado

What a privilege to use the assets of our Christian camps to proclaim the gospel message in the testimony of God’s creation.

When Christ Comes, p 104, Max Lucado, Thomas Nelson, 1999

About the Ordinary Hiker

A Christian camp director for many years, I enjoy ministry and being outdoors. I refer to God's creative wonder as the testimony of creation, a special place where God brings His word to life. Its where I like to be and where God speaks in His gentle voice in the awe of His creative work.

    I feel closer to God in nature than a church.

    This was really beautiful as I feel like dunelight does … I find my God staring at the stars or listening to the trees rustle. ♥
