There is something about the family of God that is unique when compared with other religions and their gods. Can you guess what it is? I’ll give you a little hint. It has to do with science.
Woah! Wait a minute Ms. Blogger. Have you gone off your rocker?
The world characterizes people who believes in science and does not believe in God, as an atheist. Are you saying that members of God’s family are uniquely atheist?
God forbid! Absolutely not!
But one of the definitions for Who God Is, is Omniscience! The other 2 definitions for God are that he is Omnipresence and Omnipotence.
This week as I studied, I became fascinated with the meaning for ‘om-ni-science’ as I read holy scriptures that depicted God’s supernatural knowledge of everything. And believe it or not, I have just given you the definition of the word omniscience.
The word comes from two Latin roots: “Omni” which means all and “scientia” which means knowledge.
So, the next time you engage atheists in a conversation, introduce them to the very Creator of what they believe in…which is science. As a member of the family of God, you can gently boast that God is Om-ni-scient! You might close your discussion by saying…you atheists are counterfeit believers in the Creator of science. Which is that very thing that you hold fast.
So, in a sense, we believe in the same God!
Continue in your witnessing by saying, since man’s knowledge (the scientists) is limited, and all of us are finite creators, why not ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand those agnostic feelings and thoughts you harbor which most atheists wrestle with.
My prayer for you to become a more effective witness for God’s Kingdom is this…
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for your Word and for the privilege to be included in your family. And I also thank you for the mysteries of how you intertwine in the hearts, souls and lives of skeptics and non-believers. You love us all, Dear Jesus, and want none of us to miss eternity. Help us to turn away from the trash and tinfoil of this world and what it has to offer and run into your outstretched arms of protection. May we come to realize that all that we are, all that we hope to be and all our ‘getting’ is in your hands. Reveal yourself to us, my Lord. Help us to turn our eyes upon Jesus and seek His precious face. For we seek your knowledge and wisdom above anyone else’s. Amen
Scripture Lesson: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine. Since you are precious and honored in My sight and because I love you, I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life.” Isaiah 43:1, 4
