"The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock;
and let the God of my salvation be exalted!"
Morning Bible Study with Coffee
God Is Alive!
That's a very important statement.
The Lord lives. God is alive.
Do you realize that? God is alive.
It's related that once in the life of Martin Luther,
his wife, Katie, came down in the morning and greeted him
and she was attired in mourning, she was in black,
and Luther said to her, "Why are you wearing mourning?"
She said, "Because God is dead."
He said, "Nonsense, woman, God isn't dead."
She said to him, "Well, if God isn't dead, why do you
act as if he were?"
And that was a real rebuke to Martin Luther,
the great reformer, the great interpreter of Scripture.
But so many of us, I think, need to be reminded.
Sometimes there are other preachers whose wives need
to come down all attired in black and when they ask them why,
their answer is, "Well, God is dead."
And we expostulate and say, "Nonsense, it isn't true!"
And they answer, "Well, if He's not dead, why do you
act as though He is?"
Remember that, God isn't dead.
There was a school of theology sometime back
that asserted that God is dead.
The quote, "God is dead" is
attributed to German philosopher,
I have to tell you, that school of theology is dead.
The theologians who espoused it are probably dead too.
But there's just one person who isn't dead,
and you can know He's not dead.
If you know Him as your God and your Savior.
If He is your rock, then you know He is alive and not dead,
and that's the best news today.
God is not dead!
The Cave of Adullam in Israel provided safe refuge within the rock
for David when he was hiding from King Saul.
