Just a Line in a Movie
It was a Christian movie. But it seemed that they only got half the point. The one character asked, if God is really there, why doesn’t He do a miracle and ‘poof’ no more evil? And everyone kind of ignored her. Just like now as I watch an old TV show that is the epitome of empty religion – follow these rules and take part in these rituals and maybe you will get into heaven, everything in me was screaming: He did do a miracle! He sent Jesus. The greatest miracle.
The easy thing to do would be say ‘poof’ no evil. And for our Great God -- that is all it would take: one word. We conveniently forget such a thing would snuff out our lives; for we are evil, sinful sons of our father, Adam. But for some reason, He loves us. (For me this is more unexplainable than the problem of suffering.) And because He does, He chose the hard way. Jesus Christ laid down His glory and majesty and came to earth as a man like us; the greatest miracle God has ever given to man. He was:
And fully man.
Born of woman.
And born of God.
Tempted yet perfect.
The Lion to reign supreme.
And the Lamb to suffer for the sins of the world.
The fulfillment of Scripture
And the only hope of eternal life.
Jesus still is and always will be the focus of faith. The Wellspring of life. The Way to heaven. And we still we look for a miracle while missing the miracle of Jesus.
