Bible Reading:  John 3: 1-21

Memory Verse: But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)

As an 11-year-old, the science teacher walked into the class and said, “Today we’re going to study the atom. The atom cannot be seen by the human eye except through a powerful microscope.” He went ahead to say that this atom (which he had never seen with his naked eyes) is divided into three parts viz: proton, neutron, and electron. Isn’t that ridiculous? He had never seen an atom, didn’t know what it looked like, but he did know that it had three parts. He expected me to believe it! Yes, I did believe it and I still do. I believe in nuclear fission, atomic energy, atomic explosions and nuclear power.

Just like the atom, there are many things that exist and take place every day which we do not see nor can we prove their existence. To that effect, it will be ridiculous to look at the precision, the symmetry and the beauty of this universe and draw the conclusion that it “just came about”. You have been looking at this universe with its tremendous laws, its billions of stars and planets hurtling through space at fantastic speeds and never colliding, and yet you say it just came about? Think of many things in your everyday life that you have accepted, believed or trusted that you cannot see. Biology teaches there is vitamin A in carrots, vitamin B in rice, vitamin C in oranges, and vitamin D in milk. I cannot see a vitamin, and I don’t know what a vitamin looks like, but I eat them every day and receive their benefits. Then, why can’t I believe God without seeing Him? Why must a person choose to be an atheist? Faith is the currency of life. Open your heart today as you accept Jesus as your personal Lord and saviour and with the eyes of faith (just as an electron microscope) you begin to see Him. Faith sees the invisible, hears the inaudible; walks and works in manifestation. “Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible” – Corrie Ten Boom.
