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 own forms of microscopes or telescopes. His "instruments" come in different forms, involving much "higher technology".

- His Spirit:
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.
