Thought for the Week 



By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. (Hebrews 11:3, ESV)  

By faith, know what others cannot know. By trusting Christ, gain a comprehension of God’s power. By depending on the Lord, grasp the power of His Word. God’s Word, which is invisible, created everything we see. Now, that doesn’t make sense to the unbeliever. 

Some time ago, Dana Tierney described in The New York Times how both she and her husband John had rejected their childhood faith. They had their son Luke baptized to placate their families, but that was it. 

When Dana's husband went to Iraq as an imbedded reporter, she was understandably fearful. But she was surprised at how calm four-year-old Luke was. She assumed that it was just youthful naiveté. Then one day they were watching a TV interview with a U.S. soldier who was sharing his fears about returning to Iraq. For just an instant, Dana saw Luke form his hands to pray. When she asked him about it, Luke at first denied it, but after he did it a second time, he confessed that he had been praying.

Dana was stunned, partly by Luke's faith, and partly by how his faith allowed him to be calm and her lack of faith caused her to be fearful. She was also embarrassed that her four-year son instinctively knew that praying for his dad was not acceptable to her. 

When Dana asked Luke when he first began to believe in God, he said, “I don't know. I've always known he exists.” Later in the article, Dana admits that she feels like she is missing out. She writes, “[My religious friends] have an expansiveness of spirit. When they walk along a stream, they don't just see water falling over rocks; the sight fills them with ecstasy. They see a realm of hope beyond this world. I just see a babbling brook. I don't get the message.” (David Hart Bradstreet, Star Struck, Zondervan, 2016, pp. 108-110)  

“The heavens declare the glory of God” (Psalm 19:1), but the unbeliever doesn’t get the message. Four-year-old believers understand more than 40-year-old atheists. They don’t just see the obvious. Like Dana Tierney admits, they see “a realm of hope BEYOND this world.” Put your faith in Christ and see that realm for yourself.
