Reason To Believe-Increase Of Knowledge

April 27th, 2016

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the increase of knowledge.

A transition has been underway in society, taking us from the industrial age to the information age, ever since the invention of the computer.

In the last century, we have seen tremendous advancements in transportation, communication, and medical breakthroughs. Daniel 12:4 pointed to a day when people would go here and there to increase knowledge.

But General Omar Bradley has made this observation about our times: “We have grasped the mystery of the atom and neglected the Sermon on the Mount…Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.”

There is a type of knowledge that we need beyond facts-and that is the knowledge of the truth-knowing Jesus Christ with a mind and heart that embraces Him as Savior and Lord. Second Peter 3:18 urges us to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That is the kind of knowledge that will help us use technology constructively, and live out our faith productively.

The increase of knowledge in the grace of the Lord Jesus is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
