The world is the theater of God’s glory. But it’s not just beautiful natural landscapes that motivate our worship; it’s beautiful work as well, even when done by unbelievers.
Who can look at an apple and not worship God? Who can look at an Apple and not worship God. The simplest natural product and the most sophisticated digital product both provoke and promote worship.
Why is that?
It’s because both reveal God in ways that lead us to admire his attributes. Here, for example, are six attributes of God that are revealed in technology, providing lyrics of praise to God.
Technology makes us worship God’s wisdom: It’s God’s mind that conceived of silicon, radio waves, fiber-optics, light, electricity, magnetism, space travel, rocket fuel, etc. It’s God’s mind that put sufficient general principles in Scripture to guide our use of technology
Technology makes us worship God’s creativity: Behind every good invention and ingenious design is The Inventor and The Designer.
Technology makes us worship God’s goodness: How thankful we should be that we are living in an age of such life-saving and life-enhancing technology.
Technology makes us worship God’s power: It’s mind-blowing to think of the amount of energy that technology uses every day – hundreds of billions of kilowatts – and yet that’s just a little part of God’s great power.
Technology makes us worship God’s patience: What incredible patience and longsuffering that sees such good gifts taken, abused and turned against the Creator and His creatures, and yet He still spares us and our world.
Technology makes us worship God’s grace: because our overuse and abuse make us realize how much we need his grace of forgiveness for our sins and the grace of his Holy Spirit to deliver us from tech enslavement.
