FROM THE WEST WING

   “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Psalm 19:1-4. What a beautiful portion of scripture. I have once again been impressed with the grandeur of this place that I have called home for most of my life. The beauty of Mt. Rainer is breathtaking. The ruggedness of the Olympics to the west and the Cascades to the east is inspiring. The glory of each sunrise and sunset points to the faithfulness of the Creator. How could anyone live in such a place and deny the existence of God? The heavens declare, the skies proclaim, their voice goes out into all the earth! Paul declares in Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” 

    Yet, we all know those who will deny the very existence of God. In fact, we live in a society that at best pays lip service to the reality of God. While I cannot understand this, we shouldn’t be surprised. Paul continues in Romans 1:21 by stating “Although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.” Psalm 14:1 boldly declares “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”

   It is because of this that I am thankful for Fairview Christian School where we can boldly declare, with the heavens, the Glory of God. We can lead our students to the reality of God. We can and do prepare them to live in a society that will often deny God and His Glory.
