An age old debate appears to be heating up, getting hotter and hotter. A debate that carries with it eternal consequences.
Some believe it, others try to refute it.
A shackle to free thinkers and liberated lifestyles; it has released many, and is the judge of everyone .
It has always been, and forever will be; no person or group can lay exclusive claim to it.
Though multitudes attempt to guard it, defend it, explain it, and even broadcast it to the nations; it can only be found by those who seek it.
Always contemporary, never behind the times. Never hidden, though ignored by many.
Brighter than a million lights; it penetrates the darkest of souls, enlightening and renewing.
It’s weight is more than the strongest man can bear; yet it is the very thing that lifts him heavenward.
It is beyond comprehension but not beyond knowing.
Sharper than a surgeon’s knife, as tender as a nurse’s touch, keener than a scholar’s perception, yet simple enough for anyone with childlike faith to grasp.
It can be a fire in one’s bones, or refreshing as a cool drink of water.
People will curse it, but never reverse it.
Pilate asked about it.
People turn away from it; afraid to face it, let alone embrace it.
It demands total acceptance and allegiance, or it is compromise.
Men and women can have an insatiable desire for learning and knowledge, and still be far from it. Those who oppose it still must face it.
Everyone eventually bows before it.
Whoever commits themselves to it finds love beyond description, and help for every situation.
Though not easy to swallow, it settles every nerve and heals every ulcer.
It can not be separated from its Author. It’s inseparably connected with godliness and righteousness.
It stirs up controversy. It settles disputes. It divides the best of friends and separates the goats from the sheep.
It was promised to the serpent, tested in the desert, welcomed with palm branches, and nailed to a cross.
It was victorious over death, a tomb, and even hell itself.
It’s being attacked as it was in Noah’s day, mocked as in the day of Lot.
But some are believing it, as in Jonah’s day.
It will remain, though the heavens and the earth are destroyed by intense heat.
It will stand, even though challenged by the lawless one himself.
If misunderstood, it can remove all doubt. Unchangeable.
It is the foundation for life, and the one necessity in death.
To those who know it, receive it, embrace it, love it, and live it…
It is everlasting life.
“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” (John 17:3 NKJV)
“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” (John 17:17 NKJV)
