The dictionary defines “discovery” as “to bring to light, to learn, to find or see for the first time.” The desire to discover seems to be an innate part of man’s nature. From the dawn of human history the challenge of discovering new worlds, new ideas and new frontiers, has captivated every generation. There have been so many thrilling discoveries that it seems almost impossible to label which is the greatest of all. For example, consider anesthesia – the artificially induced insensibility to pain. What a huge difference that discovery has made in the lives of millions who go through operations. Sir James Simpson discovered the use of chloroform as an anesthetic. The brilliant man was once asked, “what is your greatest discovery?” Without hesitation he replied, “that I am a sinner and that Jesus Christ is my Savior.” Are you more clever than sir James Simpson? Have you ever made that discovery that you too are a sinner in need of a savior?
