|Here's my life verse, from
the (King James) Bible:
Happy 400th Birthday, KJV! (1611-2011)
"It is better to trust in the LORD than to put
confidence in man."
As I watch man's absurd ideas of abiogenesis and
upward evolution dying their inevitable deaths, about to take their
place alongside all the other vain attempts by men to discredit what God
has said, this verse grows ever more meaningful to me.
He spoke this physical universe, including time
itself, into existence (uni verse: 'one spoken sentence'!) in six days,
as we know days, and reminded us of that in Exodus 20:11. The miracle is
that He took so long! But He did it that way to teach us, as can be seen
in that verse.
He not only Created, but allowed His creation to
have free will (love always involves choice), knowing man would fail and
rebel against Him. And when we failed Him, He did the unthinkable. You
can almost hear His angels gasp in horror at the very idea. He, the
Creator and Sustainer of the universe, physically entered His creation
and died! Himself! In your place. In mine.
And then He did something else that had never been
done. He left the grave and defeated death! And He's still alive -
today, right now!
For those He knew would scoff, He arranged to have His life
pre-written, history in advance, with details so numerous and complete
as to be irrefutable!
And He, your Creator, calls to you today, wanting
only the best for you, not desiring that you should spend eternity in
darkness in what He calls the 'second death' (Rev 20:6, 14).
You have free will. A choice - that's already made if
you've not called to Him for Life. Don't put your confidence in men.
Choose Life. Real Life, that lasts. Choose Jesus Christ. Don't miss Him
and all He has for you, especially the Free Gift of eternal Life. Call
out, today, to your Creator, the God Who hears.
You will never be the same!
