“To those who believe, no explanation is necessary. To those who do not believe, no explanation will ever be adequate.”
How many ways are our lives and the things around us, explained?
We rarely force our doctors to explain how medicines work or ask an aeronautical engineer to unpack how a plane flies in the sky. Have we sat and talked with our relatives who have had joint replacement surgery to elaborate on how their body did not reject the new joint/limb? In personal circles, we rarely force a conversation with family members or friends who choose to live limited in their mentality, or with those who continually make terrible decisions.
When it comes to the simplicity of the gospel, we enter conversations to prove the existence of a God, who’s handiwork is evident. Someone please tell me where the wind comes from? Elaborate to me how the human body is able to fix itself, and, what single- celled organism developed fast enough (over the million? Billion? years – we can’t even agree to the age of the universe) to be the complex humans we are? What about eye movement and the source that causes us to have dreams? What about knowing what trigger causes the mother to enter into labor?
As Christians, we are placed in the earth to shine light into dark places. Before you jump into your next discussion about how to prove the existence of God, just ask them one of the questions above. And if they have no problem accepting the fact that something beyond their comprehension can be possible, ask them, for a moment, to apply that same philosophy to Christ. Their day may actually be brighter.
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! – Romans 11:33
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:9
Happy Witnessing & Cheers!
