April 19 2017 Knowing Scripture; Knowing God

What does one say in mixed company when the question of God’s existence comes up?  Scripture offers us many examples.  People came to believe by hearing the stories of what God had done.  We can offer the same!  Consider Pharaoh and the Israelites in Egypt.  They witnessed not 1, but 10 plagues before believing.  The non-God-fearing Jethro in Midian likewise heard about the plagues and the Exodus miracles, and praised God!  And Rahab, also hearing about the wonders God had done, likewise came to believe and follow the Lord.  Through prayer, and by sharing the events of salvation history from Scripture, people in our lives will also come to believe.
