I’ve owned a number of watches over the years. Have you ever opened up the back of a watch? What a complex little machine we can wear on our wrist!
Every time I see a watch, I am sure of one thing. There was a watchmaker. That’s the point William Paley made more than two hundred years ago.
The writer of Hebrews makes a point of acknowledging the evidence of God from nature. Like the watch, the universe had a creator.
For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.Hebrews 11:2-3
The people of old understood something many modern people miss. They looked up at the stars at night and in the world around them during the day and they placed their faith in the God who created it all. How about us?
