John 3:33 says, “Anyone who accepts [Jesus’] testimony can affirm that God is true.” How does your faith and life testify to the truth of the one living God?
How does God’s creation encourage you in your faith? What keeps some people from seeing and accepting God’s truth? How can you help them?
In the movie Limitless, actor Bradley Cooper plays Eddie Morra—a lazy, unkempt man with little going for him. Morra’s life takes a radical turn, however, when he’s given the drug “NZT” that enables him to access 100 percent of his brain. While on NZT, the former sloth has unbridled abilities, allowing him to rake in money, success, and women.
At the film’s release, The Wall Street Journal asked Cooper, “If you could, would you take NZT in real life?” “Yeah, of course I would,” Cooper laughed. “I would love to experience what that would be like. To open up all of your brain. . . . Maybe you’d realize the existence of God or something.”
While the possibility of finding God through a pill may seem alluring to some people, I find the notion limiting and depressing. I can’t savor the idea of reducing access to God to a synthetic drug.
I love the passage in Scripture that says, “Ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God” (Romans 1:20).
We can “know the truth about God because He has made it obvious to [us]”! (Romans 1:19). “The heavens proclaim the glory of God,” King David penned. “The skies display His craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Him known. . . . Their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world” (Psalm 19:1-4).
Our hearts and minds can find great solace and reason to rejoice when we place our faith in Scripture, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, all which proclaim God’s existence.
