Firstly, The natural world announces it.
Secondly, The Bible Announces it.
Thirdly, Faith Announces it.
A little boy brought a loaf of bread, and someone asked him, “Where did you get that bread?” “Oh,” he said, “I got it from the grocery.” He said, “Where did the grocer get it?” “Well,” he said, “the grocer got it from the baker.” He said, “Well, how did the baker get it?” He said, “Well, he made it out of flour.” “Well, where did he get that flour?” “He got it from the miller.” “Well, where did the miller get the flour?” “Well, he got it from the farmer.” “Well, where did the farmer get it?” “Well, he got it from God.” “Well, let me ask you another question, or the same question: Where did you get that loaf of bread?” This time, he smiled, and said, “From God.” Amen? You see, dear friend, don’t you say that your business takes care of you. It is God that takes care of you. It is God that sends the rain to make the grain grow. It is God that causes life.
Submit Self to God
Sincerely Seek God
Scripturally See God
On January 13, 1982, Air Florida Flight 90 crashed into the Potomac. Ice on the wings prevented the plane from having a successful takeoff. Almost all of the passengers perished. The few that survived struggled in the icy river as rescuers tried to reach them.
Five times a helicopter dropped a rope to save Arland D. Williams Jr. Five times Williams passed the rope to other passengers in worse shape than he was. When the rope was extended to Williams the sixth time, he was too weak to take hold and succumbed to the frigid waters.
His heroism was not rash. Aware that his own strength was fading, he deliberately handed hope to someone else over the space of several minutes. The bridge near where he died has now been named the Arland D. Williams Jr. Memorial Bridge.
Jesus did not rashly give his life for us either. Being a sacrifice for us was his destiny from eternity past. We need only take the lifeline handed to us to be saved by his sacrificial death on the cross.
