His Ultimate Creation

C. Hayden
All of God’s creation is an absolute wonder to behold. Just think of the beauty of the changing leaves we see as we traverse a country road. Or the majesty found overlooking an endless sand-lined ocean view. Or stop by the Indianapolis Zoo’s butterfly arboretum sometime. Take a look at the overwhelming beauty of the Monarchs or the Blue Morpho butterfly among countless others. God is truly the greatest of all artists. Yet in God’s economy, He loves and cherishes one creation above all the others. Though the earth houses an innumerable collection of marvelous treasures, mankind is the one who holds the heart of our Father God the very most. For it is you and me that He came to this planet to redeem. 
In Psalms 139, Kind David weaves striking poetry in the 13th and 14th verse. “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are you works; my soul knows it very well.” David ponders his own beginnings in God’s world of wonder. Within those musings, David recognizes the premium that is put on the conception of each and every soul. We are “fearfully and wonderfully” made. That word fearfully is derived from the Hebrew word “Yare” which means AWE! In other words, when we see mankind in the process of a baby’s conception, the response God should receive from those in attendance should be nothing less than AWE! How we demean and defame God when we say a preborn baby is nothing but a collection of cells! God help us!
When we see a baby in the womb of his or her mother (yes, I was gender specific and used the term “mother”), we should respond in no less than absolute awe of our wonderful, mighty to behold Creator! That is who God is, and that is what God thinks of us. Yes, our God is the Master, and we are His masterpiece! We are priceless to Him! To redeem our Lord’s highest order of creation, us, it would be extremely costly. The ultimate creation’s price for our Lord’s ultimate creation is the blood of Jesus, God the Son. And Jesus paid it willingly. That is how much you are worth to God!
Be blessed even more!
