The Incredible Journey

Sermon in progress. Please be  patient. Thanks for stopping by.

You the reader probably have never thought about this–but  do you realize right at this very moment you are on a fantastic  incredible journey??  This planet earth, distance from sun to earthincredible journey begin when you and I were born on this planet called “earth” which is just a speck of dust in a gigantic indescribable  universe!

We are all traveling on this space ship called earth, spinning around like a top, traveling around the sun every 24 hours at an amazing speed of 66,600 mph.

Around and around we go- year after year- day after day – hour after hour.

Many of us riding on this space ship called earth are perplexed and troubled, not understanding where we came from, don’t know why we are here, and don’t have any idea where we are going.

Suicide among young people is at epidemic proportions in parts of are country.

American politician- Gus Patrick stood up to speak to a large assembly of people- he said simply, “There is no hope-there is no hope for the world”, and pulled a gun from his pocket and shot himself in the head, and died in a pool of blood in front of all the shocked people.

Former President George Bush said some time ago, “there’s a madness  throughout the world”.

A French philosopher said these words: “Each man exists in a watertight compartment as an isolated individual in a purposeless universe, we cannot know who we are, where we came from, or where we are going. Since we do not understand the past and have no hope for the future then the present throbbing moment is all that matters, only what we realize in the  immediate present is significant and has meaning. Distant goals have no validity, therefore to sacrifice the present for the future is nonsensical and stupid.”

We live in a “I want it now” generation with a humanistic philosophy that has overtaken our land. It’s on with the dance, let us eat, drink and be marry for tomorrow we die.

But Jesus said in John 14:1-6 “Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?”Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me. “

I tell you Folks, Jesus came to this sin scared earth to show us the way back to God- and He’s saying to all of us traveling on this space ship called earth;

“you believe in God, believe also in me. In my fathers house are many rooms, if it were not so I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Do you know the way back to God?

You see, when God created man, he was perfect- he lived in a perfect environment – man was created to live and never die-he was never meant to get sick or grow old. Man was meant to have unbroken daily fellowship with his creator.

  • Man was made in Gods image
  • God put something in man that He didn’t put in any of His other creations- The Eternal Soul!
  • He put the light of eternity in mans soul.

In Geneses the Bible says: ” And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and man became a living soul” (Gen. 2:7).

It’s kinda like God put a candle in man, and he lit that candle with a heavenly light, and man walked in perfect harmony with God and had perfect peace and happinessBut sin came- Satan came and tempted man, and man disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, and the Bible says every last one of us who are traveling through life on this tiny speck of a planet have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. [Romans 3:23]

Ever person that’s ever been born has been born with that candle of God inside of them-but the candle is not burning -the heavenly light is out- snuffed out by sin, and it needs to be relit again!

The Bible says Jesus is the only one who can relight that candle of eternal life, for it says in John the first chapter: “through Him all things where made: without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it”

All mankind has been born with a hunger and a longing, a craving to be more than he/she is-to be complete.

It’s like Cristy McAuliffe said before she went up that fateful day in the space ship Challenger:

She wanted everyone to learn more, including herself. “What are we doing here? We’re reaching for the stars,” she said after entering the astronaut program.
Perhaps she was reaching for that one that can fill the emptiness and that longing in the human heart- reaching for that one that can light that candle of eternal life in the heart and soul of a man or woman, boy or girl.
