There once was a set of twins who were in their mother’s womb. The first twin said to the second twin, “I can’t wait to finally see Mommy face to face!” The second twin replied, “Stop being foolish. How could you be so sure of yourself that Mommy exists? You have never even seen her before.” The first twin responded, “You’re right. I have never seen Mommy before, but I know she is real. I have faith. And the evidence of my faith is all around us–The womb that we live in, the placenta and umbilical cord that provides us with nutrients, oxygen and other necessities. Mommy makes sure we are taken care of. How else do you think we were created? How else do you think we are able to survive?” The second twin replied, “Well, I don’t believe you. All the evidence you provided isn’t enough for me. I need to see her for myself to believe she exists.” “Don’t worry,” the first twin said. “There is an appointed time when we will both finally see Mommy face to face.” The second twin asked, “And when will that time be?” “I don’t know the day nor hour,” the first twin responded. “But it will be soon. And I will be in anticipation.” Nine months later, the twins’ mother went into labor and gave birth to both of her babies and they both opened their eyes and saw her face to face. The first twin was rewarded for its faith. The second twin was put to shame.
Likewise, in this life, there are atheists/agnostics/skeptics and believers. Some believe in God, some don’t. But the evidence of God’s existence is all around us. Romans 1:18-22 NKJV says:
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools…”
There is an appointed time for each of us to meet our maker. Each man is due one death and then the judgment. 2 Corinthians 5:6-10 NIV says,
“Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”
Don’t wait until you die to find out how real God is. If you don’t develop a relationship with him before you die, then on Judgement Day, he’s going to say “I never knew you,” then he’s going to say, “Depart from me, you worker of iniquity, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”
“Believe in God, believe also in Me.” -Jesus
