UNIFORMLY DISTRIBUTED Tuesday, September 29, 2020

In his book “A Guide to the Planets,” Patrick Moore wrote of our beautiful earth: “It is the only world in the solar system upon which we could survive.” Why did he write that? Because if the earth were smaller or larger than 8,000 miles in diameter, by as little as 10%, all life could cease to exist. For the earth to be habitable, it must have an adequate supply of light, heat, a uniform distribution of water, and an atmosphere of proper density and composition. Our planet has all of these. Why are they so uniformly distributed on earth, making life possible? Because God our Creator did it. That’s why He inspired the human author of Genesis to write, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

ONE BIG EVOLUTIONARY ACCIDENT ? Monday, September 28, 2020

All the wonders of the world around you are accidental. No intelligent diving planner keeps them on their steady courses. A small flower invented itself so that we could extract digitalis for sick hearts. No one put the oil just deep enough in the earth to keep until we need it. Yes, some folks think our universe is just one big evolutionary accident, and that we are all animals. As animals, we are not accountable to God. Interestingly, the psalmist was inspired to write, “The food has said in his heart, there is no God.” Did all this just happen by itself? Only blind, unsubstantiated faith could possibly believe it all just happened by itself. Through the ages, sincere, thinking people have believed the Bible when it says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

COSTCO FOR PEI ? Friday, September 25, 2020

There is no Costco on Prince Edward Island, a disappointment for many Islanders. Many drive to access the retail giant in Moncton or Halifax. The reason is for bargains. Speaking of bargains, the greatest offer of bargains ever is in the Bible. Isaiah, the Old Testament prophet, was inspired to write, “Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! […] without money and without price.” That’s an offer for all. We are unable to pay to have our sins forgiven because only God can do that. We cannot buy our way into heaven. Though “the wages of sin is death, the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.” That is a bargain none of us can afford to miss. It is open to all who will, by faith, receive it.

A PILL FOR EVERY PROBLEM Wednesday, September 23, 2020

“North Americans have become conditions into believing that there is a prescription for every common ache or disease,” according to newspaper columnist Dr. W. Gifford Jones. This philosophy is troubling because the root cause is often overlooked. Sadly, many take the same approach regarding our spiritual needs as well. We try improving ourselves by going to church, getting baptized, or giving to charities, all hoping to impress God. But the Bible teaches us that behind our moral and spiritual problem is the heart. We read, “Out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.” We need to admit honestly that we need a new heart, not spiritual pills, due to our root problem—our fallen sin nature.

A DOCTOR’S GREATEST DISCOVERY Monday, September 21, 2020

Many medical doctors are evangelical Christians. Dr. Nelles Silverthorne was a pediatrician and a research scientist at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. When whooping cough was a dreaded disease, he worked on the development of a vaccine for immunization against it. He was a pioneer who assisted in the development of the oxygen tent and one of the first physicians to use penicillin. But Silverthorne says his “greatest discovery ever” was when he became a Christian. He said, “Whoever reads this, please be assured that being a born again Christian is the greatest decision and the most thrilling experience you can have on earth.” Dr. Silverthorne knew that Jesus had said, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God,” and that, “You must be born again.”

GOD AT THE CENTER, NOT MAN Friday, September 18, 2020

Recently, meteorologist Cindy Day, speaking of growing up on her grandmother’s farm, wrote, “Regardless of when we thought it was time to cut the hay or harvest the corn, nature decided for us. Seasons came and left, everything got done, but not necessarily on our schedule.” It is good for us to be reminded that “God changes times and seasons, removed and sets up kinds, gives wisdom and knowledge.” Some see man at the center of all things, but the Bible reassures us that “many are the plans in the eyes of man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” How wonderful it is that God not only controls our world, but Jesus loves us and offers us salvation through His Son Jesus. All we need to do is ask.

AN APPLE A DAY Wednesday, September 16, 2020

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Just an old wives’ tale, right? Better check again! Recent research has discovered that the lowly apple contains polyphenols that help reduce visceral fat and are said to promote longevity. So, before we throw out the old-fashioned ideas, maybe we better do the research. Another old-fashioned idea reveals that man will one day answer about his relationship to God. All are invited to accept the gift of salvation provided by the death of the Lord Jesus. God’s Word, the Bible, claims, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” The prudent will act upon this important Bible truth. Where we spend eternity depends on what we do with Christ in this life.

WARNING FOR A FARMER Monday, September 14, 2020

The Family Herald and Weekly Star was a farm magazine published for almost a century, in operation until September 1968. One reader, a farmer, wrote to the editor and announced that he was an atheist. He said that in his community, most of the farmers were Christians, and he believed they were wasting their time denying themselves certain pleasures which he enjoyed. He wrote that he planted all his crops on Sundays. Then, he announced, “This October, my crops were the largest of any in the community.” The editor’s brief, classic response was, “Dear sir, God does not settle all of His accounts in October.” Hopefully, that atheist farmer heeded the Apostle Paul’s warning: “Boast not yourself of tomorrow…” Let’s hope that he followed the advice of the Old Testament prophet Amos: “Prepare to meet your God.” Good advice for all.

NEVER TOO LATE Friday, September 11, 2020

“It’s never too late to quit smoking,” according to Dr. Peter Selby. He notes that many smokers who make resolutions to butt out for good see the deadline come and go, but he said that National No Smoking Week and “Weedless Wednesday” offer encouraging reminders. He is right. In other areas of life as well, it is never too late to make a change in our lives. Perhaps you have good intentions to turn your life over to God and begin again. Paul wrote in the New Testament, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.” That’s what it means to be spiritually reborn. Quitting smoking is never too late, and turning to God is never too late.

HEROIC POLICE OFFICER Wednesday, September 9, 2020

In San Francisco last month, a senior faced death when his wheelchair became stuck on a railroad track with an oncoming train only seconds away. Officer Erika Urrea rushed to the scene and hoisted the helpless man out of the wheelchair, saving his life just in time. She risked her own life to save another. Paul the Apostle was inspired to comment on such situations, saying, “For scarcely for a righteous man will one die, yet perhaps for a good man some would even dare to die.” He reminds us of the rarity of someone dying even for a good person. Then, he revealed God’s amazing love, saying, “But God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Officer Urrea bravely acted to save a life. Jesus acted with love to save our souls.
