Some time ago I found a giant globe. Inside the globe were three spheres. The largest was centered in the globe, and the second largest, at some distance moved in an elliptical rotation around the central sphere. The smallest of the spheres circled around the second sphere. This machine quite fascinated me, so I set about to explore its wonders.
Most curious was I that I could find nothing connecting the spheres. They seemed to simply float in their positions. Neither could I discover any source of power. After much contemplation, I concluded that the power that ran the machine must be contained in the spheres themselves. Then I looked for a way to open the globe, but no place of entry to the globe was obvious. When I gave up on that, I began to look around the room where the globe was located.
I spied a book lying in the corner of the room, and I opened it. In the beginning of the book, the maker of the globe was clearly identified, but being unfamiliar with this person it was of little help in my quest to unlock the mysteries of the globe. I read further into the book and did discover some hints about the workings of the globe, but this partial information only led to frustration. However, I did learn much about the maker in my readings. So, I finally decided to set out on a quest to find the maker. I concluded that only in him lay the answers to satisfy my curiosity.
Many have believed that our universe came about by accident. But, as The Book tells us “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made …” (Romans 1:20). In order to understand the world we live in, I believe we should set out on a quest to find the maker. He has the answers we seek. Yes, The Book is very helpful with this endeavor.
