Psalm 8:1-2 (NKJV) O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens! 2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
My friends, the majesty of the Lord is evident in His Creation. Creation gives evidence to the wisdom and power of God the Creator. His glory is higher than the heavens. Yet educated and sophisticated men dismiss the evidence as if it did not exist, because that is how they feel about God. However, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ made the truth of these verses clear when He said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3 NKJV). Jesus is talking about going on to a new life by means of a new birth. Just as Jesus explained to Nicodemus, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3 NKJV). The important thing to understand is the new birth. In order to enter into the kingdom of heaven, you must become as a little child in the sense that you must be born again. This is a spiritual birth in which you start out spiritually as a new born baby. And from that moment, you begin to grow spiritually towards maturity. This new birth is done by repenting of your sins and accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior. And at that moment you are baptized by the Holy Spirit, that is you are filled with the Spirit, and you are born again. At that moment you are made a new creation in Christ Jesus. It is also by the Holy Spirit who uses the Word of God to grow you spiritually towards maturity. The educated and sophisticated men refuse to see the evidences of God’s existence. But even infants in Christ, that is new born believers, in their innocent faith sing of God’s greatness in their songs of praise and worship. This is exactly what Jesus said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes” (Matthew 11:25 NKJV). Many educated and sophisticated men never learn this truth, but even new believers in Christ understand this truth very well. And so, even a new believer with childlike faith can often silence an enemy of God through an innocent question or a naïve observation. Even babes in Christ can bring low the lofty pretensions of those educated and sophisticated men who deny God’s hand in Creation. My friends, put aside all your boasting in your education and sophistication, and come to Christ in simple faith and be saved.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
