GOD’S WORD FOR FEBRUARY 4
GOD’S WORD FOR FEBRUARY 4 ~ ~ Job 38:4-7 ~ ~
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding,
Who set its measurements? Since you know.
Or who stretched the measuring line over it?
On what were its bases sunk?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together
And all the sons of God shouted for joy?”
While man make lots of things with wheels, bearings and a variety of moving devises, these things don’t offer good solutions to the problems most living things have to deal with in life. Wheels are useless for going through the jungle, climbing trees, flying or burrowing. Besides, these things need repair often. But God has made all things well.
For example, the skeletons of all mammals have a ratio of 30% shock-absorbing collagen to 70% calcium phosphate for strength. This ratio provides the very best balance for holding up a mammal’s weight during movement.
Engineers also know that in order to get the best flow of a liquid – such as blood – a pipe’s cubed radius must equal the sum of the cubed radii of each of its branches. And this is exactly the relationship found in all living and fossilized creatures, from sponges to humans!
The impressive engineering found in all living things – and even in the oldest fossils – shouldn’t be surprising to those of us who know the power, wisdom, and great love of our Lord God and Savior!!!
But, what about those who don’t know Him? What about the children (and young adults now) who, for years have been taught that the lie of evolution is THE truth? Must they be lost because they believe the great deception? Once they hear the lie, they immediately doubt the Truth of the Word of God. If they doubt it in one area, they will potentially doubt it in all. For example: If God didn’t create all things in six literal days, then why should they believe that there was an actual worldwide flood (which the evolutionary teachings also deny)? Why would they believe that Jesus actually died on the cross for us? (many say He didn’t actually die, and others say it was an imposter) And thus they wouldn’t believe the Resurrection. One deception multiplies quickly when we begin to doubt the Word of God. We need to tell people the Truth. We can start by checking our churches, and by telling people ourselves, handing out tracts….Ignorance is deadly. God said: in Hosea 4:6 ~
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”
Does your church believe in the True Word?
Or does it tweek, or add things to it?
Does it have other ways to be saved, like baptism, sacraments, good deeds, repeated prayers?
If so, you, nor anyone else, is going to hear the way of Salvation through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross—which is simply:
Salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
