I can’t prove there is a God…

…to the satisfaction of an atheist, any more than I can convince a blind man that the sky is blue or that snow is white. If he refuses to believe me and wants to believe that either or both are yellow, there is nothing I can do!

The problem for the sinner is NOT that there is no evidence of God, but that he cannot and will not see that evidence.

The Bible tells us very plainly about mankind’s fallen, sinful condition. The sinner’s bias is against God and nothing but a work of grace in his heart that opens the mind to the truth can remedy this situation.

The Lord Jesus said: “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God…he cannot enter into the kingdom of God…Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” (John 3:3, 5, 7John 3:3, 5, 7
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

The kingdom of God here is that spiritual state which is enjoyed by the people of God. Christ is their King, they live by His laws, and benefit from the temporal and eternal consequences of being in that heavenly kingdom.

He is blind and must be made to see; deaf and must be made to hear; foolish and must be made wise unto salvation (2Timothy 3:15); spiritually dead in sin (Eph 2:1Eph 2:1
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

If you dismiss God’s truth as just so much folly, you are only displaying the fact that you are spiritually blind and dead and urgently need Christ as your Saviour. In fact, you are simply confirming what the Bible says about you. “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.” (Psalm 10:4Psalm 10:4
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. God is...: or, all his thoughts are, There is no God

It is your sin that keeps you from acknowledging God. You have a responsibility to seek Him, confess your sin and obtain His pardon in order to be reconciled to Him. May you do so today!

“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” (Isaiah 55:6-7Isaiah 55:6-7
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. the unrighteous...: Heb. the man of iniquity abundantly...: Heb. multiply to pardon
