The above phrase is of course taken from Psalm 139:14:
“I praise you, because I am wonderfully made;
wonderful are your works!
My very self you know.”
The above verse struck me powerfully when I heard this podcast by Ravi Zacharias. Ravi was relating something that Francis Collins, physician, geneticist and former head of the Human Genome Project, once shared in a lecture at John Hopkins University. Dr. Collins was giving a talk on DNA and he shared these fascinating pictures:
Absolutely beautiful, isn’t it? Can’t we infer that the human DNA is a product of an intelligent and creative agent based on its appearance alone?
I believe that we are products of an intelligent Creator and Designer, and that is a totally mind-blowing thing to realize: Because that means that we are incredibly precious and unique. Just as the Yorkminster window is a work of art and a masterpiece, so are we God’s works of art and masterpieces!
