The Chronicles of Biscuit - A BIG "G"!

The Chronicles of Biscuit - Stories about our youngest son, Tyler, whose nickname is Biscuit.

A few days ago, Biscuit was doing his homework. He was working on vocabulary and the definition was "a building constructed for a god."  The answer/word was 'temple'.

Biscuit said, "Mom God (in the definition) should have a BIG G, not a little g."

I said, "Yes, but remember in the Bible how people worshipped statues and called them a god?  Some people still do."

Biscuit said, "Yes, but they shouldn't!  I'm making it a big G!"  And he did!

I'm so glad that Biscuit has the concept of only ONE GOD and that it should always be a BIG G!  Sadly, throughout the world, many people believe in some other type of "little 'g' god".  A "little 'g' god" that can do NOTHING!  No power.....no hope.....no salvation in eternity.

As Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego proclaim when they wouldn't bow down before King Nebuchadnezzer's idol, "WE WILL NOT SERVE YOUR GOD!"

16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” Daniel 3:16-18

I pray that all of you will proclaim that very same thing every day of your life!

Last night we had a missionary talk to us during our midweek worship time.  He talked about growing up in Ethiopia.  His family was Islamic and even his grandfathers were high up in the Islamic faith.  But he met Christians when he was growing up and later realized he wanted to live how they lived - by showing God to others.  He left Islam and converted to Christianity!  He now travels around the U.S. and back to Ethiopia to show God to others!  He loves telling others about Jesus!

No one but God has the power to offer salvation to YOU and ME for living with him in eternity.  No one but GOD sent HIS SON to DIE for you on a cross...where He willingly suffered for our sins.  There is NO OTHER GOD!  I pray you believe that wonderful truth!
