Key Words: God...Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son
The well-known theologian Charles Hodge wrote about his early years at Princeton: “It was my privilege to be the pupil-assistant of Professor Joseph Henry, the illustrious scientist. When, for the first time, electric signals were sent from point to point, the earth itself being used for the return current, Professor Henry put me at one end of the circuit, while he stood directing the experiments at the other. I can well remember the wonderful care with which he arranged them. Very often, when the testing moment came, he would raise his hand in adoring reverence and call upon me to uncover my head and worship in silence. He would say, ‘Because God is here. I am about to ask Him a question.’”
Professor Henry was a God-fearing man and recognized the Almighty’s presence in creation. He, therefore entered into his experiments depending upon the Lord for the right solutions. He believed that the voice of God could be heard in the universe, for the Bible says, “Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge” (Psalm 19:2). Yes, we can hear Him speak, as it were through the light and laws of nature. But the Almighty has also spoken through the prophets of old; through His written Word, the Bible; and through the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ.
In nature we can learn about God’s greatness, power, and intelligence. But His Word and His Son reveal most clearly His love, mercy, grace, will, and plan of redemption.
Remember, GOD IS SPEAKING! He tells us all we need to know. It’s up to us to listen!
What to do:
