The Only Adequate Explanation

Have you ever thought about how ignorant it is to assume that we ourselves and all that is around us just, somehow, happened? If that were so, we have no adequate explanation of life, where we come into the picture, or what, if anything, remains after the grave. In short, nothing makes sense! We have no reason for existence, no real or lasting purpose for existing, and no likelihood of existing after our brief sojourn here. We are a mere speck in the middle of a gigantic illusion. “Here today; gone tomorrow!” is our epitaph. Why do people ignore the only adequate explanation: God? Speaking of scoffers, Peter wrote, “For this they willingly are ignorant of.”  (From II Peter 3:5). (Peter then goes on to mention some things that they choose to ignore). Paul, writing to the Church at Rome, said in Romans 1:28: “….they did not like to retain God in their knowledge.” Why is that? John 3:20 tells us: “For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” John 1:1-9 tells us what the light is that people avoid. The “bottom line” is that fallen sinners do not want to let God control them and direct their lives and behavior and they do not want to be accountable for their sin. So, like an ostrich, they try to hide their heads in the blinding sand of human explanations, while they move inexorably on to eternal judgment. Some will ignorantly say, “I don’t believe all of that stuff!” The only answer to that is: “What if you are wrong?” Only when one comes to the Light, does life make sense! Consider the truth simply given in the opening stanza of “Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus,” by Helen H. Lemmel: “O soul are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There’s light for a look at the Savior, and life more abundant and free!” The chorus goes on to challenge both non-Christians and Christians: “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.” Selah! Only those who know Jesus (or are willing to know Him) as Savior and Lord can ever come to a completely adequate explanation of life and find meaning, purpose and the unfailing promise of Heaven. Have you? If not, will you?  Ron
