Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Amazing Face

Have you ever objectively studied your face? There are billions of faces, and every one is different (except for “identical” twins). Each one has its own individual characteristics, and yet God made every one with just two eyes, a nose, and a mouth. If you think that's no big deal, try it yourself, from nothing.

Think about the ethnicity of each face. The Chinese look different from the Japanese and the Tibetans. The Dutch look different from the English and the German. You can pick a Russian from a Brazilian or someone from Africa, simply by looking at his face.

But the genius of Almighty God is even more wonderful. Look into the mirror and study your face closely. Start with no expression, and then see if you can act. Use your eyes only to express fear, pain, joy, disappointment, anger, thoughtfulness, and amazement. You won't be able to confine the emotion to the eyes. You will feel the muscles--particularly around your eyes and mouth automatically (with no conscious effort on your part) join in with whatever emotion you express through your eyes. The human face is much more than "amazing." It’s a miracle of the unspeakable genius of the Creator. What an honor (understatement of eternity) to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him.

Do you know Him? Or do you just know about Him? The way to come to know Him (in whom the Bible says dwells the source of life and light), is to think about your many sins, and then think soberly about the Savior and what He did for you on the cross. Then apologize to God, turn from that sin, and entrust yourself completely to the person of Jesus Christ. That's the way of salvation. It’s so simple, a child can understand it. So, what are you waiting for? Evidence? You need no more than a mirror. Face it.
