How do we make sense of things unseen? That’s a difficult question for some people to answer. Ultimately, we choose what we want to believe or not believe. In Hebrews 11:1 we find the non-exhaustive definition of faith; “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen.”
With that said, it’s easy for us to believe that that light travels 186,000 miles per second, even though we’ve personally never measured it. It’s easy for us to believe there are 100 trillion stars in the sky without question. It’s easy for us to believe that an atom has neutrons and electrons spinning around a nucleus, even though we have never seen any of them. It’s easy for us to believe that E does, in fact, equal MC².
Undoubtedly, we pride ourselves on being sophisticated and logical creatures and if we can’t justify the unseen than we immediately reject its authenticity without flinching or batting an eye!
Equally said, when people can’t make logical sense of the Bible they choose to reject its authenticity or stoically question its reliability.
In short, there is solid proof that thousands of people witnessed the miracles of Jesus. There are testimonies from dozens who witnessed His death, only to see Him alive after His resurrection. There have been many historical archeological discoveries and yet people choose to question the Bible inerrancy and infallibility. Tell me, where is the logic in that? Logic goes out the window when people talk about Jesus.
If I am speaking to you and you are struggling with making sense of the ‘unseen’, “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come” (Ephesians 1:18-21).
