Christian walk is truly unique. The reason is that Christianity depends on each individual’s ability to believe. As a result, Christians are often called “believers.” A scientist might say, “Prove it to me, and I will believe you,” but in Christianity, God says, “Believe me, and I will prove it to you.” That is the mystery of Christianity.

For an unbeliever, our faith is proof that we, Christians, do not show wisdom. The reason is that the natural man cannot understand the things of the Spirit of God (1 Corinthians 2:14). However, in 1 Corinthians 1:27, the Bible tells us that God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. For example, it makes no sense to unbelievers when we say that a virgin gave birth to Jesus Christ. Most of the time, they say, “How can a virgin give birth?”

Jesus said something very important in our memory verse today. He said that only those who are like children will inherit the kingdom. In other words, you must believe in Him like a child believes in their parents, whether what they say makes sense or not.

Many people make the mistake of trying to logically relate to God. It is impossible because logically relating to God is impossible. This is because the Bible says that God’s ways and thoughts are above human understanding (Isaiah 55:8-9).

There are people who argue against Christianity with logic. Do not argue with such people because you cannot explain Christianity logically. Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:23-25 to avoid useless disputes with people concerning the truth of the word of God.

The way to prove that God is real is not through arguments but through the demonstration of power, as Elijah did in 1 Kings 18. The apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 4:20, “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.” Furthermore, John 4:48 says, “Unless you see miracles and wonders, you will not believe.” No matter how much you try, you cannot win anyone to Christ through arguments. Once you have shared the gospel of Christ with unbelievers, entrust their hearts to God, for only the Holy Spirit can convince and convert them. Do not argue with them about your Christian faith; instead, ask God to use you to perform signs and wonders so that when they see the power of God at work, they will surrender without opposing arguments.

Beloved, I pray that the power of God is evident in your life and that God uses you to lead many people into His kingdom, in the name of Jesus.
