You might have watched “God’s not dead” the movie. It is amazing. While I was watching
I remembered when I too had the chance as a biochemistry student to speak in front of the class about God and the evolution. There were around 300 students in the auditorium. The difference is that the students didn’t give me the chance to explain specially that I didn’t have a microphone while the professor had. I thank God that my professor was not an atheist, yet he reduced the work of God to a spirit blower. For him, God blows the spirit in every cell formed in the universe. When he said that; I couldn’t keep myself from asking him a few questions and entering a debate that lasted two sessions.
I don’t want to spend much time on the conversation we had but what I want to share with you is that our God–The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit–is not dead and is much more than that.
The issue isn’t to prove that God exists. In his epistle, James said “You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror (James 2:19 NLT)”. God exists in everything around you. The entire universe speaks about His glory and greatness. The issue is what this already existing God is capable of?
Many people proclaim they know God, they have faith in God, they might also go to churches, and some are even spirit filled. But what is God capable of?
You know nothing more than demons, unless you experience what they can’t. Even if you go around preaching that God exists, you will not make any difference. But if you go around preaching that God is capable of doing great and mighty things, then you will be dangerous to the kingdom of darkness.
Beloved, God is capable of changing your life. If you are sick, He can heal you. If you are in need, He can provide. If you are in bondage, He can set you free. If you are wounded, He can heal the wound. If you forget about Him, He will never forget you; He is still waiting for you to come back. God is capable! Jesus, who was the image of the unseen God–God incarnated– came and showed us what God is capable of. He can calm the storm that is destroying your life. He can raise the dead man that is inside of you. He can change your stony heart and replace it with a heart of flesh and blood. He can use you to continue to do His work here on earth. Yes! You! You can be used to share the gospel with the people you meet every day! I can keep on telling you what God is capable of but “I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.(John 21:25 NIV)”
The movie God is not dead ends with a statement “text all the ones you know and tell them that God’s not dead”. Well I want you to do the same but now text them “God is capable to do great and mighty things in your life”. Let us spread the news. Amen.
