All Nature Is His Parable


The longer I live, the more I realize that all of history and all of our lives are parables within The Parable–all creation, every creature, unique characters in the Story of Love God has always been telling. When I look around me, wherever I find myself, I see people living lives that exemplify The Parable beautifully, living obedient to His Spirit, trusting in Jesus, loving and blessing people all around them. When I look around me, wherever I find myself, I see creation poignantly portraying that same parable of loving attention to nature, individually and collectively. Indeed, all nature is His Parable, just one nuance of His eternal story revealing Himself as true and perfect Love we can believe in, trust in, depend upon, and prove with the total surrender of our lives in mirroring His own surrender for our sakes established undeniably, irrefutably, indisputably; in the coming of Jesus a peasant child; the living of Jesus the perfect man, the dying of Jesus our willing Lamb, the rising of Jesus our triumphant Lord. He has come. He has lived. He has died. He is risen! Hallelujah! He is risen, indeed!

 All nature is His parable spoken
To tell His majesty and power
In the ceaseless roar of oceans
And the rushing waters of rivers.

All nature is His parable sung
Upon the mountains grand His praise
Or in the meadows flowers gently
Sweetly as they dance in the breeze.

All nature is His parable spoken
Boldly by His living creatures
All the truth of wisdom blessed
In obedience and righteousness.

All nature is crowned by His parable
Eloquently embodied
In Jesus His Immanuel
Only Son of God, only Son of Man.

Romans 1: 19-20

For what can be known about God is plain to them,
because God has shown it to them.
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature,
have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,
in the things that have been made.
So they are without excuse.
