No Small Print


"And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, who fills everything in every way" (Eph. 1:22).

We have all bought something that came with a guarantee. It may have been one of the things that attracted us to the product.."Two years or 50,000 miles." But what part(s) of the car are guaranteed for those figures? Is there smaller print to read? Have you ever read the magazine "Consumer Reports?" It is a publication that makes a lot of money by comparing different products that we buy. It compares them on many different levels and then rates them. When it comes to "big ticket" items, we want to get the best possible performance for the money that we spend, don't we? I guess that it all boils down to whether or not the promises that a company makes about their product are believable.

The ultimate question about our faith in God is this. Can he (God) provide us with the evidence that the promises that he makes are true? The apostle Paul answers this question emphatically. "And his incomparably great power for us that believe...That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and sat him at his right side in the heavenly realms" (Eph. 1: 19 & 20). God made the promise and he made good on that promise..." 'Sir', they said. 'We remember that while He was alive He said that, "after three days I will arise again." So they gave an order that the tomb would be sealed."...."The angel said to the woman, ' Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; He has risen, just as He said' " (Matt. 27: 63-64, 28:5).

Paul said that proof comes to us in the power with which he raised his Son Jesus from the dead. He has made that same promise to us and as he has exhibited his power in a very public way, it is a promise that we can believe. God delivered on his word and brought ultimate glory to his Son. His Son is now "the head over everything for the church." The church is everything that it says it is because it fulfills all of our needs, and keeps all of it's promises....It saves man from sin and reaches out to a world in need as it glorifies Him who brought it into existence...... No Consumer Report needed....We don't even have to read the small print...

Have a great day....Make a difference... Love mark Phil. 4:11
