In 2 Corinthians 4.6 Paul reveals a correlation between the Gospel and Creation:
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
In other words, as Tim Chester helped me see:
At creation God spoke a word into darkness, and there was light. He spoke a word into chaos and there was beauty. And now God speaks a word through the Gospel…
- He speaks into the darkness of our hearts, and there is light.
- He speaks into the chaos of our lives, and there is beauty.
