CHOOSE: Worship of Creation or Creator

When people look at Creation, some recognize that God is worthy of all praise, honor, and glory. Some look at Creation and see the beauty, but fail to recognize the Designer and Creator of that beauty.

Revelation 4:11 was shared by John based on the glimpse of heaven given him by God. He was shown an extravagant throne surrounded by 24 smaller thrones upon which were seated 24 crowned elders. Flying around the throne were four very unusual beings who called out “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty— the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”

When those beings would cry out, the elders would remove the crowns awarded to them and place them before the One on the throne and say, “You are worthy, O Lord, our God to receive glory and honor and power. For You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased.”

People who see Creation worship. The question is, what or who is the object of their worship?

Which do we put more reverence in, the creation or the Creator? Paul mentioned that in Romans 1, starting about verse 18.

As believers, it is incumbent upon us to be among those who do more than view creation’s beauty.
We must see it AND see the One who created it.

We can see humans as pretty, ugly, good, bad, happy, sad, worthy, or worthless. We can also see each human as one of the amazing creations of the Almighty—as magnificent as the Grand Canyon or the Great Barrier Reef.

Our mindset determines what or who we will worship when we see that breathtaking view, that cuddly baby animal, that sleeping baby, that person across the table from us, but be certain: we WILL worship.

Time to set our minds on God, recognize Him as the Creator of everything and give Him the praise, honor, and glory He is due.
