Not Enough Faith

Comedian Mark Lowry tells of having a dinner in his home inviting friends and friends of friends.  Over the course of the night one person said she did not believe in God – an atheist!  He said he locked all the doors so she could not get away and started in on her.  He said he didn’t have enough faith to be an atheist!  An atheist is someone who doesn’t have enough faith to believe in God.  He cannot bring himself to see what is plain because God has shown it to them… his eternal power and deity clearly perceived in the things that have been made.

Lowry sarcastically says he does have enough faith to believe this world came about by some cosmic burp!  He didn’t have enough faith to believe that if he took off his watch… disassembled it into a thousand pieces… put it in a bag… then shook it for 6 billion years… that watch would assemble itself into a fine running time piece.

Which is easier to believe?  Which is more logical to believe?  Why is it thought incredible that God raises the dead?, another question Paul asked.  If one is going to believe the impossible, why not believe the impossible that is possible!!!

I believe in the One they called Jesus…

I believe that He stilled storm Galilee…

I believe that He walked on the water…

And I believe that He’s the answer for me…

I believe the words of the Bible…

How he made the poor blind man to see…

I believe that the deaf ears were opened…

And I believe He’s made a difference in me…

If you’re having trouble believing… put your dismantled watch in a bag and start shaking. Believe is not that hard!
