Resurrection-Doubting-Thomas

No excuse!

God is real, and He is a revealed God. Now, I said you could never prove God, but that doesn’t mean that you can never know God. You do not know God by proving God; you know God by revelation. I want to show you something. Turn, if you will, please to Romans 1. The Bible speaks of some people who have not a leg to stand on; they’re without excuse. Now, they claim to be atheists, but God doesn’t buy it. And here’s, here’s, here’s why.

 

God says they’re without excuse because everybody has an innate, inner awareness of God. Listen to it. Romans 1:19, 20. “Because…” Why are they without excuse? Here it is. “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them…” That is, there is an inner awareness. “… for God has shown it unto them.” There is the outer object of evidence. “… for the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made.” That is, you can clearly see from a creation there’s a creator. “… even his eternal power…” That he is a God of power and Godhead, that He’s a God of purpose, “… so that they are without excuse.”

You’ll never come to the judgment and say, “God, Huh, I want to be excused. You know, I had intellectual difficulties.” God will say you were a sinner. “The fool has said in his heart, no God.” You’re without excuse. There is no excuse for not believing in God. You see, dear friend, the Bible says that some people do not like to retain the knowledge of God in their mind.

 

 

No one is a natural born atheist. You have to be taught to be an atheist. Someone has to come along with a convoluted argument to make an atheist out of you. I heard about a child who was raised in an atheistic family. And one day the little child said at the dinner table his mother and daddy, “Do you think God knows we don’t believe in Him?”

 

 

We are, by nature, believers in God for God has shown it to them. It is in them. You see, we know not by reason, but by revelation. I’m not saying it’s unreasonable. I’m not saying that you have to crucify your intellect, but I’m saying, dear friend, when you get right down to it, God has hidden these things from the wise and the prudent, and God has revealed them unto babes. He is a personal God, and because He is a personal God and not just some blind force, God has chosen to reveal Himself to you and make Himself known. The inner awareness, the outer objectivity that we see in nature, the revelation of the Bible, and, primarily, Jesus Christ revealed the Father to us. He is a real person. He is a revealed person.

 

 

On THAT DAY hopefully not that far in the future, EVERY knee will bow and everyone will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. No exceptions, no not one.

Pray that you have the spirit, the courage, the boldness to be an evangelist. Even if all you do is leave bibles or tracts or even Jesus loves you stickers with your tips, be a light for Christ.
