We Need Faith

By   •   March 19   •   Topics: ,

Dr. Wernher von Braun, the guiding scientist in the development of our great space rockets, has said, “The materialists of the 19th century and the Marxist heirs of the 20th tried to tell us that as science yields more knowledge about the creation, it makes us able to live without faith in a Creator. Yet so far, with every new answer we have discovered new questions. The better we understand the intricacies of the atomic structure, the nature of life and the master plan for the galaxies, the more reason we have found to marvel at the wonder of God’s creation. But our need for God is not based on awe alone. Man needs faith just as he needs food, water, and air. With all the science in the world, we need faith in God.”

Why do we need religion, since so much of the world is explained by science? Read Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day

Father, man's incredible inventions are so insignificant when I contemplate Your magnificent creation. Yet, in complete dependence, I realize my need of faith in You for my smallest need.

  2. Anuka says:

    For without faith it is impossible to please God. That I believe is why Christianity is referred to as the Christian faith.

  3. Joe says:

    Amen. Thank you for always providing for us Lord.

  4. Gerry says:

    I lived my life without faith for 30 years. There was an emptyness that needed something, but I wasn’t sure what that was. Joy and peace were fleeting. Then while listening to a soul stirring sermon, I felt an undeniable urge to accept Christ as my personal Lord and Saviour. The emptiness was gone. It was completely replaced by a peace and joy like I never previously experienced. The past 33 years have been a wonderful walk with God. There have been many trials and storms in life, but I felt and continue to feel God’s presence through them all. He lights the path I choose to follow. Thank you, Lord.

    Our world is moving so fast and sadly faith is so needed and too often in our narcissistic society a missing component.

    Lord God. Let me use my tongue, my gifts and my whole self only to serve you. Let my faith and dependence on you only increase. Thank you Jesus. You are above all power and thrones and wisdom. Glory to your name. Amen.

    Father , You said to go and preach the gospel to all the world. As I go this upcoming weekend on a group mission trip with evangelists from Charis Bible College our faith and dependence is solely on You and Your Holy Spirit. We need You. we depend upon You to go to the hungry, empty , hurting people in our own country. Thank You forusing us at such a time as this for the furtherance of the Gospel.
