Tough Questions for Christians March 24 Devotional
by David Joynt on March 24, 2023
HEBREWS 11:1-3 | 1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval. 3 By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.
Atheism requires faith too! Nobel prize winning physicist, William Phillips, says this:
I see an orderly, beautiful universe in which nearly all physical phenomena can be understood from a few simple mathematical equations. I see a universe that, had it been constructed slightly differently, would never have given birth to stars and planets, let alone bacteria and people. And there is no good scientific reason for why the universe should not have been different. Many good scientists have concluded from these observations that an intelligent God must have chosen to create the universe with such beautiful, simple, and life-giving properties. Many other equally good scientists are nevertheless atheists. Both conclusions are positions of faith.
Faith is a key element in every relationship and in most human enterprises, including science. This does not denigrate reason in any way because for reason to be reasonable, it must know its limitations!
Inventory your activities and relationships. How is faith required in each of them?
Does your faith in God connect to them?
Grow my faith today. Let me see Your kingdom coming in my own life and in the lives of others. May my faith seek understanding.
