Trace Evidence

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind. - Albert Einstein

Behold, He is coming with clouds and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him . . . - Revelation 1:7

The aged apostle John tells us in the Revelation that one day Jesus will make a return every bit as spectacular as was His Ascension. The Day will come when Christ will return bodily, visibly, gloriously, and intrusively -- Every eye shall see him -- even those who wounded Him -- wounds over two millenia old and still clearly visible!

Contemplating that some sort of omnipotence does exist, Einstein concluded that his own genius was frail and feeble in comparison. The scientist's statement is all the more magnificent when we consider that he could see but slight traces of a spiritual world in play, yet upon those scant glimpses he erected his religion that admired the mystical.

Today God continues to reveal Himself to us in the slight details. What a thrill it is to find those traces, perceive them, and venture out on the faint trail of faith. Often the traces we follow are not visible to the eye, but audible in the heart. They are little more than softly whispered invitations that dare us -- Follow Me!
