And God said, “Let there be light, and there was light.”
A woman who is almost a hundred years old can’t have a baby. That’s ridiculous! I’m old. I've got wrinkles on top of wrinkles. How could my body be strong enough to do such a thing? How could I be a mother? Just thinking about it makes me laugh.
For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
Have you seen the Philistine? His arm is as big as man. I’m not going to fight him. I don’t care if it means we win the battle. I’d be buzzard bait for sure. That shepherd kid is crazy. A boy can’t fight a warrior, especially one such as he!
Then said David to the Philistine, “Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”
No man would dare defy the king, for no man could survive the flames. It’s not worth it. Why risk your life? It’s easier to bow for a moment than die in the fiery furnace. See the smoke. Feel the heat. Look at those three foolish men who won’t obey the king.
He (Nebuchadnezzar) answered and said, “Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”
There are too many people, and it’s getting late. He should just send them home. But, no. He wants us to feed them. How? It’s impossible. We don’t even have enough money to buy food for everyone. There must be over five thousand people here. How nice for that young chap to share his lunch with the Master, but how’s that going to help?
And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.
It’s too late. My brother is dead. If only Jesus had come earlier, everything would have been fine. But now it’s too late! Didn’t He care? What good will it do to open the stone? His body will have begun to decay and rot. He’s been dead for four days. It’s too late!
Jesus said unto her, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”
Water is water. I’ve made my living floating on water, dropping nets into water, pulling fish out of the water. If the wind blows hard enough, the waves will toss your boat like a puny acorn. If you fall overboard, you better know how to swim, because you just can’t walk on water.
And he (Jesus) said, “Come.” And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
I don’t believe you. He’s dead. I saw them pierce His side. I watched Him take His last breath. I wrapped His body in grave clothes, and helped carry Him to the tomb. I saw the stone rolled over the door. He can’t be alive. And that story of Him appearing in the room behind locked doors? How is that even possible? I’ll believe it when I see Him myself.
Jesus saith unto him, “Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”
I don’t deserve His love. I am the worst sinner ever. I’m a murderer! A liar! A blasphemer! A terrorist! The cries of my victims haunt me. It’s too late for me to change. I deserve to be condemned to hell for eternity. Why should God forgive me? I’m not worth saving. It’s impossible.
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
