A leading scientist at a convention of scientists was asked, “Is there anyone anywhere whom you know who could solve all of the problems of illness and famine, poverty and killing?”
“Indeed I do,” came his quick reply.
Astonished, the chairman of the committee asked, “Who?”
“A King!” came the quick, confident response.
In utter disbelief, the chairman replied, “A king? Where can we find such a king? Where has he been hiding?”
“Oh, He is not hiding,” replied the scientist. “He has made Himself well known. It is just that people refuse to recognize Him. You see, this Man is incapable of making any mistakes, knows the power of healing – both physical healing and mental healing and He knows how to feed thousands and have food left over to feed many more. He can also take care of those without water and solve other problems that people bring to him.”
In disbelief, the chairman asked, “Who is this person you have described and where can we find him?”
“You can find Him in the Bible. He is known as Jesus. In His life on earth, He did all of the things I have mentioned. And He is capable of doing many more miraculous things,” he said.
The audience was stunned as the scientist took his seat.
The Psalmist wrote, “Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of Your Kingdom.” The “throne” described in this Psalm is Christ’s throne in heaven and will last through eternity. From this throne, He will rule the world in love, justice, and righteousness – and all problems will finally be solved.
Prayer: Father, we look forward to that day of days when You will rule the world with Your peace, grace, and justice that we all desire. But until then, may we do our best to represent Your love. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of Your Kingdom. Psalm 45:6
