Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. – Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)
As we talk about apologetics this week, one thing we want to be sure we understand is that we are reasonable as Christians to believe what we do. The Christian worldview makes sense. It doesn’t contradict itself, and it accounts for the world around us and life as we see it today. That means our faith in God isn’t blind. It makes sense and can account for the world around us coming into existence.
Yes, there are aspects of believing that we can’t see. There are things in the Bible that we have to take entirely by faith. However, overall, belief in God isn’t a huge leap in the dark. It makes sense scientifically and logically.
As we study science, we realize how complex our bodies are. We see how intricate plants and living things are. It’s hard to believe that those things happened entirely by chance or by evolution. The chances of life on earth happening by chance are so small it defies probability. In that way, the Christian worldview makes sense of life and the things we see around us.
That means that our faith isn’t blind. No, we can’t see God, but we can see His creation. We see His love in sending His son Jesus to die for us. Those are just a few examples of how faith in God makes logical sense.
Today’s Truth: Faith isn’t Blind – It Makes Sense.
So today, don’t believe the lie that faith in God is blind. It’s not, as you study apologetics you’ll realize that the Bible is amazing in its accuracy. The prophecies in the Bible given about Jesus are accurate. The historical events described in the Bible took place and there is evidence for them in the world around us.
Don’t allow the world to silence you. Stand up. Be bold. Know that your belief in God is reasonable, and it’s right. Go out boldly and share the hope of Jesus with the world around you. See God move mightily through you!
Pray: God I thank you that believing in you makes sense of the world I see around me. I ask you for opportunities to share my belief in you today. I know that with your help I can make a difference in the world around me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
