My friend, may I ask you a question? If the certainty that God is the basis for all that exists is so firm, what should that do for our willingness to confess that belief to others? Should we ever have had the slightest doubt?
My friend, life’s a story, welcome to This Passing Day. I’m Mark Brunner.
I recently read an article in a magazine about DNA. DNA is made up of enzymes that form the molecules that make the structure of DNA, the genetic building block of all life. The article was by a noted mathematician and statistician from Cardiff University in Wales, Great Britain. The theme of the article was on probability: the likelihood enzymes that form to make the structure of the molecules of DNA could have done so by chance. How probable was it? The Cardiff professor came up with this equation: A = 240,000. Now, before you get out a calculator, don't bother. He went on to say that the sum would be equal to more molecules than exist in the entire universe–an incalculable number, to say the least. Without saying it, he was illustrating how difficult it is to believe in the law of chance over the probability of design. If there had ever been a doubt in my mind that God designed DNA, even the slightest doubt had no room to exist.

Here's a story: The story is told about the famed tightrope walker Carlos Zumbrati who walked a tightrope across Niagara Falls. Conditions were less than ideal that day. It windy and cold and he was thankful to have made it safely across. One of those waiting to congratulate him was a man with a wheelbarrow. "I believe that you could walk across pushing this wheelbarrow," the man told him. Zumbrati shook his head and said he felt fortunate to have accomplished the feat without a wheelbarrow. The man urged him to try. "I believe that you can do it," he said as he pushed the wheel- barrow in Zumbrati's direction. The aerialist graciously declined, turned around and began to walk away; but the wheel- barrow toter followed him still remarking that he thought he could do it. Finally, Zumbrati said, "You really do believe in me don't you?" "Oh I do," the man assured him. "Okay," Zumbrati replied, "Get into the wheelbarrow." (Speakers Sourcebook)
If you really believe, cast off the concerns, doubts, fears, and self-imposed limitations, because once you believe some- thing is true, you will then act as if it is. The evidence that God really does exist is plain. The ever mounting evidence that He not only exists but that all things exist because He designed them to be what they are from before the beginning of time is impressive. With so much evidence to back up your belief in God, what is preventing you from telling others about His greatness? It certainly can't be that you have any doubt that He is who He says He is. Get into the wheelbarrow and let God take you over the falls of uncertainty and doubt. Enjoy the ride and, looking down is permitted.
We pray. Father, thank you for the beautiful time to gather around your truth as a community of believers.Thank you for bringing us from life to death; for making us a new creation. Help us to see people as you see them and tell them of this new life we have received. Help us to commit fully to the tasks that you have given us to complete. Pour into us the power of your Holy Spirit, the power that sets us apart and enables us to do what we should do. That people in all nations will return to You in joyous praise for Your glory. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
Therefore my friend, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry for itself; each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matt 6:34) This Passing Day. May this passing day honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and be a blessing to you and everyone you meet. Find a stranger and say hello. Don't let another day pass without your day blessing someone else.
