“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.” So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.” (Genesis 9:16-17)
En route to Glorieta, NM, this past weekend with a friend, we drove through some storms….saw others from a distance. Pic #1 – i thought this was unique with the rainbow embedded in the relatively small section of “white rain.” Pic #2 – beautiful double-rainbow on the backside of the storm we’d just driven through.
By the way – regardless of what group on planet earth claims the “rainbow” as their personal logo/emblem/etc, always remember – the rainbow belongs to God. It was His idea – not to represent people, but to represent Himself. It’s a timeless, natural (supernatural) reminder of God’s mercy over humankind’s corrupt heart. It’s God’s “brushstroke” of, both, present and eternal hope. For the Christian, it’s a reminder of Jesus Christ.
May these photos (I quickly snapped with my phone) remind you, today, that, when asked how much Jesus loves us, He stretched His arms out over the cross and said, “This much.”
I love you all, Nick
