It’s Possible to See Clearly Now By Dr. Bob Snyder

What are you using to see life more clearly?

There are many different ways we can begin to see things in life, like Christmas, more clearly.

In elementary school, my teacher scraped the surface of a table onto a slide and placed the slide under the microscope. Creatures and debris invisible to my eye were exposed by the power of magnification. What had been invisible became visible.

For much the same reason, a friend pursued a career in astronomy after gazing into a telescope. The realization that much of what exists in outer space escapes the limitations of the human eye sparked his interest in the cosmos.

God has provided His forms of microscopes or telescopes. His “instruments” come in different forms, involving much “higher technology.”


 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

~ Romans 1:20, NIV


The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful work.

~ Hebrews 1:3, NIV


However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
    what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”
    the things God has prepared for those who love him—

1these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

~ Corinthians 2:9-10, NIV

During this Christmas season, we are reminded that God revealed Himself in Jesus. He “became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” What an amazing microscope!

O come let us adore Him, God’s righteousness revealed.
