Looking for Jesus

Matthew 28 describes how on resurrection morning women came to the empty tomb looking for Jesus. Have you looked for Jesus recently? Do you see Him through His work in creation (Romans 1:20)? He is the beginning and the end (Revelation 21:6). He created the universe and everything in it in six days (Genesis 1; Colossians 1:16; John 1:3). Our Maker is our helper (Psalm 121:1-2). He created you and me (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 139:13-14), and He created us to do good works that He prepared for us in advance (Ephesians 2:10).

In the feature this month, “On This We Stand,” Dr. Henry Morris III reminds us that our Redeemer Jesus is also our Creator. Dr. Morris says, “[Many passages of Scripture] are more than sufficient to identify the ‘Word made flesh’ as the second Person of the Godhead through whom God ‘made the worlds.’…ICR will always publicly honor the Lord Jesus Christ as the Creator.”

Consider Jesus’ work as Creator as you read the articles in this issue. In Dr. Jeff Tomkins’ article, see how the Lord clearly reveals Himself through what we observe about water and the nature of life (“Abiogenesis: Water and Oxygen Problems”). Notice how everything Jesus made has a distinct purpose in Dr. Jerry Bergman’s article “Do ‘Useless’ Organs Prove Humans Evolved?”, and witness His incredible design of living organisms in Dr. Randy Guliuzza’s article “Active Environmental Tracking Explains Similar Features.”

When we look for Jesus, He reveals Himself in creation for us to clearly see—He makes Himself known. Just as He showed Himself to Mary outside the empty tomb, He visits us. And we’re left to marvel: “O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth!” (Psalm 8:9).

We can observe His works and say with the psalmist, “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?” (Psalm 8:3-4).

This is the time of year when many homeschoolers are planning for the upcoming school year. If you’ve been wondering how to strengthen your emphasis on creation in your science studies, the Institute for Creation Research can help. We’ve put together an outline showing how you can use ICR resources in a 36-week creation unit study. You can find this free outline at ICR.org/homeschool. We’ve also put together a creation unit study pack with the many resources listed in the creation unit study outline. For a limited time, you can get this pack at a more than 50% discount.

This edition of Acts & Facts will arrive in your mailboxes just as you and your family are celebrating Easter. We hope you will experience anew the wonders of our risen Lord! He is risen—He is risen indeed!
