“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.”
In the Bible we read the story of the very first week on this planet we call earth. Within these first two chapters of Genesis we see all the amazing events that God constructed with His own hands. In the third chapter we see how man was able to destroy it with one act of disobedience. Today I would like to go back to the question, “What would you give up to spend one day with Jesus?”
Today across our nation there is someone telling your children and us this never happened. They are telling everyone that this was all one big accident and we are here because of some random act. They are reading this in their books, watching it on their TVs and learning this in their classroom. We even see the new thought that evolution and creation could coexist.
If we are to believe that the Bible is the word of God and that it is infallible, we cannot accept this false teaching. We are told that the Bible is truth. Read John 17:17. “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” We also see that it reflects the character of God. John 5:24 reads, “Most assuredly, I say to you, He who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” If these verses are true, then He is truth and as such could not lie to us.
So back to my question, “What would you give up to spend one day with Jesus? Maybe what you need to give up is the doubt – the doubt that the Bible could somehow be missing key thoughts about our existence or maybe God is just not telling us everything.
Yes, there are questions to which we have no answers. Maybe these are just some of the things we can ask Jesus during our day with Him.
