Read the Bible in a year: Genesis 28-29, Psalm 33, Matthew 18
According to the secular media miracles happen regularly. An ocean-liner sinks, and days later someone is pulled to safety. This is hailed as a “miracle.” While the media usually keeps the mentioning of God to the minimum, they do know that miracle stories lift ratings. They are heart-warming to viewers. But the truth is, we don’t know when God intervenes in the lives of human beings. He does the miraculous, but He’s not always in the miracle-mode. The first eleven disciples were murdered for their faith. They no doubt prayed for miraculous deliverance, but it didn’t happen. So why would anyone want to be a Christian--if God lets His own be killed? Here’s a good reason--all who repent and trust in Jesus have His immutable promise of immortality. On top of that, He transforms sin-loving sinners so that they love what is right and hate what is wrong. So, if you are looking for a miracle, there’s the big one. Death is overcome through the new birth, and the door of everlasting life is thrust open by the grace of Almighty God. Christianity begins and ends with a miracle. C. S. Lewis said, “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
Copying Lotus Leaves
The surface of lotus leaves have
bumps that make the water to bead and pick up contaminates. Scientists have developed chemicals to treat the surface of plastic and metals to cause the same effect, in which water rolls off and takes the contaminates with it. This effect has many applications that have made windshield wipers and car wax obsolete. Companies as General Electric are developing coatings for commercial products as well.
