A Daily Word - Jan. 30

WANTED: FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE 

Dr. E. Stanley Jones has said that mankind is on the verge of a spiritual renewal ushered in by the scientific method. What is the scientific method? In pedestrian terms, it is the belief that truth is revealed by experiment. In other words, it is proven deductively. Prior to the age of science, truth was determined philosophically—by debate. But the scientific method has brought the search for truth out of the lecture hall and into the laboratory. I happen to agree with Dr. Jones that this turn of events is conducive to revival. Why? Because we have a God whose presence and precepts stand up to investigation and experiment.

Our God became flesh. And the Lord Jesus invited (and still invites!) men and women to take Him into the laboratory of life and prove Him. When we do, we will discover that Christianity is real. It is true. Chesterton said, "If there is a story….then there is a storyteller." The Gospel is the truest story ever told. And God Himself is the Storyteller.

Are you a skeptic? Trust Christ. Try Him. Prove Him. He can withstand the fiercest intellectual investigation you can muster. But be warned: Some of the most powerful apologists this world has ever known discovered truth by experience, and began the journey as doubters.

MEMORY VERSE 

JOHN 8:32
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
