I stood in the ancient cathedral. The tall stained glass windows threw sunbeams to the floors. The lights bounced back to the painted ceiling portraying God’s attempt to reach man with a touch. One that day, the fingers of light gave the same message. The arm of God reached into the room to warm us with His presence.
The silence was broken when the stone walls picked up the whispers of a few visitors. The sounds being tossed around the room gave me the sensation of angels speaking in an unknown tongue. Was it their whispers or God’s voice?
The whole experience helped me to realize God’s attempt to reach us. His light reaches into our darkness, but many fail to see Him. His creation warms us to His presence. But because of sin, many only hear His voice as an unknown tongue.
God still reaches out to us. He longs for us to see His love, take His hand, and be sheltered in His arms. You don’t have to be in a cathedral. He’s trying to reach you now. Will you respond to Him?
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20, 21).
