GOD’S WORD FOR NOVEMBER 28
GOD’S WORD FOR NOVEMBER 28 ~ ~ 1 Kings: 4:29~ ~ “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that [is] on the sea shore.”
One of the most studied but least understood organs in the human body is the brain. The human brain is the most complex arrangement of matter in the universe. It is universally recognized that the brain is more sensitive to damage than any other organ.
Scientists studying the brain have learned that when the brain is injured, it triggers the release of some very special chemicals called neuronotrophic factors. While researchers aren’t sure how these chemicals actually work, studies show that the chemicals seem to help the brain repair damage to itself. They believe that each of the different chemicals works to repair a specific structure in the brain.
Medical researchers are continuing their study of these factors with the hope of using artificially created versions to help those suffering from brain damage due to stroke and trauma. They hope to learn from the body how to help the body do what it now tries to do for itself.
Despite man’s arrogance against the God who Created us, our home planet, the universe, and all matter, and energy, the greatest thing about God is His Love for us. In fact, He IS love.
“He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”
It could be argued that our brain is our most important organ, since all actions of the body have to go through the brain. It is far more complex than man can understand, extending to even repairing itself.
This could not “evolve”. The brain could not learn this and survive to continue.
In His love, God put this ability into our brains in advance of the fall of man into sin. He knew that man would, in effect, spit in His face, right there in the garden. He could have put an end to it all right then, but His love wouldn’t do that. Not only had He already equipped us to deal with the darkness and suffering that comes with sin, but He also knew that He would become a man and take on that very sin for us!!!! That plan was made before He created the world, because He knows all things.
How wonderful is this God??? How can anyone callously write off His Word, His Love letter to us, giving us one more chance to be saved from an eternity of punishment that we deserve for our sins?
How can people still arrogantly go about trying to “be good enough” to make it to heaven on their own? How can people think that just going to church, doing good works, will make a dent in the blackness that is in each person’s heart? Perfection is far from each of us, and only by His Grace, and the sacrifice of Christ ALONE, will we see our Lord in eternity.
He gave us a brain to understand His Word!!!! Will You listen to Him?
