Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

 Author Elisabeth Elliot: Big Enough To Worship!

Thirty years ago I was standing beside a shortwave radio in a house on the Atun Yacu , when I learned,  one of the principal headwaters of the Amazon when I learned that my husband, Jim Elliot, was one of the five missionaries missing.  They had gone into the territory of the Auca Indians a people who had never heard even the name of Jesus Christ.  What did I do?  I suppose I said out loud, “O Lord!” And he answered me.  Not with an audible voice ( I never heard him speak that way in my life).  But God brought to mind  this ancient promise from the book of Isaiah.

I am the lord your God.  Think of it !  The One who engineered this incredible universe with such exquisite  precision that astronomers  can predict exactly  where and when Halley’s comet will appear -this God is my Lord . Evelyn  Underhill said, “If God was small enough to be understood, he would not be big enough to be understood,  he would, not be big enough to be worshiped .” Can we imagine that God who is concerned with so many stupendous things, can possibly be concerned about us?  We hope he is.  That is why we turn to him in desperation and cry out , as I did, ” O Lord”  Where else can we possibly turn when we have come to the end of our resources?

Does God love us?  Karl Barth , the great theologian , was once asked  if he could condense all the theology he has ever written into one simple  sentence.

Yes he said ” I can. “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so”.
