Does God Exist?

By Fergus Davar

Hi folks, it’s nice to write again. This Sunday (October 4, 2009) my Church had a Gospel Sunday. We were asked to invite some friends. I invited the people from my city. The Word today was focused on complete freshers, those who are struggling just to believe that God exist.

Now for those who don’t believe in God. This may happen when people go through hard times in life but I will tell you this they will come to the conclusion that God does not exist when they are out of the bad situation. They somehow fail to see who was instrumental in pulling them out. I say instrumental because God often uses the environment around His people to help them out. As my Pastor rightfully puts it there is never an atheist on a sinking ship except may be in the movies. Even an atheist will say yes to God in a dire situation but when he is out of that situation he forgets God because of his own pride to stick to his notions & he will make himself believe that it was just a coincidence or he got lucky or he had some good people to rely on. He thinks everything worked in his favour without God something like a diesel engine running without diesel. Without God nothing happens & nothing exists.

Now let us consider Science, Science is something that shows the splendor in all of God’s creation. So that we may stand in awe of God & give Him glory. Let me give you an example; consider our computers I am sure that most of you would have your own desktop or laptop. Now you may have had a computer for so long that you may have lost your enthusiasm for your computer. However if anyone were to take you through the science behind your computer, like showing how millions of semiconductors fit into your processor, which is just the size of a potato chip or showing how all the information in the books that students carry in those bulky bags can be accommodated in a memory chip the size of your thumbnail or showing you the science behind wireless data transfer via Bluetooth. If I were to help you understand this, you would be intrigued but you would not give glory to man. I have never come across man glorifying man because of technology that man made. Man may say that he is not satisfied because there is much more to learn and make but deep within man knows that what ever he has learnt has come from God. Man has never been self sufficient that is why man is never satisfied when he relies on himself. Coming back, just as the knowledge of how your computer is made and how it work, helps you appreciate technology. In the same way we, this world with every thing in it & the universe help us see the splendor of God and so give Him glory.

Genesis 1:1 says that in the beginning God created the heavens and earth. Now to tell you about the science of the universe, I were to compare my planet Earth to the Sun, it would be like comparing my city Mumbai to the state Maharashtra that it is in. It would be like the size of a really small coin. That is the same way the Earth is compared to the Sun. Now if I were to compare the size of the Sun to our Solar System, the Sun would be a very small fraction of the entire Solar System. The Sun would probably be like another small coin in our Solar System. For those of you who need some school brush up, I would like to tell you that the Solar System is one where we have our Sun in the center and the plants with their moons revolving around the Sun. I think its time for me to tell you of the measurement that is used for telling distance between stars. The measurement is called light-years. The speed of light is 3X(10

8) meters per second, which is some amazing speed. Think of this, light takes just 8 minutes to go from the Sun to the Earth, which is roughly 93 million miles. So just imagine the distance light would cover in one whole year & that is called 1 light-year. Just like our Solar System, there are many other Solar Systems that together form one Galaxy. The Galaxy that holds our Solar System is called the Milky Way. Do you know what is the diameter of our Galaxy (Milky Way)?, it is 100,000 light-years. Now just like our galaxy there are millions and millions of other galaxies holding their own solar system. Can you imagine how big that is? I can’t but this is just the known universe. The telescopes that we have today can only look this far. As Physics says that the universe is ever increasing, I cannot comprehend, when it will be, that we will be able to see, the entire universe, which also is small fraction of God’s creation.

Now from all of the above we may feel so insignificant because even if we were to use the latest and best microscopes and look only at the known universe then to you would not find you of me. I would like to quote to you something from Isaiah 40:25-26.

Isaiah 40:25-26.

To whom can the holy God be compared? Is there anyone else like him?

Look up at the sky! Who created the stars you see? The one who leads them out like an army, he knows how many there are and calls each one by name!

His power is so great not one of them is ever missing!

I would also like to quote Psalms 8:3-4.

Psalms 8:3-4

When I look at the sky, which you have made, at the moon and the stars, which you have set in their places-

what is man, that you think of him;

mere man, that you care for him?

I would like to also add that God did not give any stars or any of those huge galaxies a soul but only to man so that God may have an eternal relationship with man. It was man whom God created in His own image.

Genesis 1:27

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

You may now ask me, how can someone who is immortal spend eternity with someone who is mortal, who lives not more than a hundred years? Well the answer is in Jesus, it was the sin of man that caused man to bring death upon himself. So God knows all this ahead of the beginning of time and plans to free man of his sin but God is just and the price of sin must be paid. The only way out for man to spend eternity in heaven with God is for him to believe in the sacrifice of Jesus.

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You see Jesus existed before the beginning of time before any creation, he is the begotten Son and God & he is God in union with the Father & the Spirit, who together exist as One. The Bible says that there is not a thing in all creation that is perfect in the eyes of God. The only thing that is perfect is God Himself. So only God could be that perfect, spotless & sinless sacrifice for all sin, this called for the Son of God to come to earth as man, fully man but still fully God & die on the cross for man’s sins. This way Jesus humbled Himself and made Himself that perfect sacrifice for sin so that man believe and spend eternity with God. Where else can you find such love?, only in Jesus no where else.

Philippians 2:8

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Just imagine the creator of all things that existed, exist & will exist paid the price of your sin with His own life. Here is scriptural proof showing Jesus as a creator of all things.

Hebrews 1:2

has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;

So if there is anything in your life that has made you consider believing in Jesus, then you may say this with so much faith that you believe it beyond your own existence. You may say I come to you God and I humble myself before you, I put all my trust along with my sin and hard times, all my trust I put in the Son of God Jesus. I hold on to only you O Jesus, you are my lone salvation.

One last piece of scripture,

Hebrews 1:3

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

You can see from the above that Jesus holds up the whole universe just by the power of His Word. If He can do that He can definitely hold you up no matter what your problems are.
