Do you find yourself doubting God’s existence?
Can you imagine what it would be like for Jesus to walk among us, in this modern age of technology? We can Google almost any question and get a variety of answers and perspectives. So why would we need God? Jesus challenged the intellectual elites of his dayand revealed the errors in their thinking; and the seditious intent of many who claimed to be good. Today, it can be easy to find online groups that readily agree on ideologies that need to be tested. It is often when the consequences of poor choices appear, that we begin to question if whether or not there is a God.
According to the Bible,finding God requires a fundamental change of heart(Romans 10:9-10).A psychological stumbling block for many people is that they seek a sign in order to believe; but according to scripture we are told that there will be no sign(Mark 8:11-12).However, scripture does say that we can find God,if we seek him with all of our heartand soul (Deut. 4:29).We are also told that God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship in him in spirit and in truth(John 4:24).This informs us that the sign we receive will be a spiritual response from God and not a material signone.
Most believe that our physical bodies are animated by our spirit,and many of us believe that we have souls(Gen 2:7). If we consider ourselves to be more than a material body, why not seek the one who says he created the spirit within us? We are invited to taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8).This provocative statement is a call to go deep within ourselves. Do we dare test this bold invitation to find out for ourselves, whether or not God is real? What if it is possible that we really are made in his image and were created to seek after him(Acts 17:27)?
For two thousand years, the question of God’s existence has crossed generations, cultures, and peoples. Despite persecution, the immortal story of Jesus continues to pierce the hearts of those in need of spiritual comfort. This is what Jesus promised when He said, “I must go away so the Comforter, can come. The Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you in all things” (John 16:7).Whether you doubt God’s existence or doubt the natural religious inclination of humanity, you are not alone in your questions. We are told that the evidence of him is everywhere (Romans 1:19-20). Perhaps it is up to us to look.
