Examples of wondrous in a Sentence

  1. William Hallman:

    Creation and redemption are the spheres in which these glories are displayed. In creation we see the eternal power and deity that belong to God alone (Rom. 120) while a deeper and richer glory is unfolded in the wondrous cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. There God is fully revealed, not only in terms of His dominion and deity, but in His holiness, love, and grace. At the Cross I learn what creation could never tell me--who God is and what He is to me, a guilty sinner. God is love therefore, He is both light and life. A Savior-God What marvelous grace and glory.

  2. Gene Roddenberry:

  3. Cometan:

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    What I am going to say may appear narcissistic, but it's true. If you want to see a miracle, all you have to do is just look in the mirror, and you will see the greatest miracle in this world: The Human Body, the amazingly wondrous creation of Supreme Power, in my view. The process of creation of human body begins with the union of sperm and ovum in the womb of a woman. It's just a beginning of the greatest miracle, because almost immediately begins the creation of thousands of millions of body cells, which in fact build the most complicated tissues, complex organs, and exceptionally intricate systems of the human body. Interestingly there are about one octillion cells in adult human body, which can be written as 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. And now comes the astounding fact: all these one thousand trillion trillion cells are created by only fifty consecutive replications of just one cell. Wow! That's what I consider miracle, created by none other than Supreme Power!

  5. Herman Melville:

    For whatever is truly wondrous and fearful in man, never yet was put into words or books.
