God at Work through You
When any friend of Reasons to Believe shares about God’s life-changing work in their personal ministry, we can’t help but share the good news.
Paul, an enthusiastic supporter of our mission, writes just how vital it was for two of his close family members to know RTB’s creation model [emphasis added]:
Dr. Ross, I was able to share a sample portion of what I’ve learned from your work this past year with my sister and her husband tonight. They are believers but internally wrestled with the creation story they were told, basically a conflicted mesh of YEC and doubt caused by certain scientific interpretations of creation. Their response was unbelievable!
I’ve never been so thrilled to share this and to know that a major source of doubt has now become a major source of validation and evidence. They both text messaged me and commented endlessly regarding further implications that occurred to them after we spoke. This was such a blessing, one of life’s greatest moments so far to see their hopes in Christ contact this reality so confidently.
We have such a strong level of trust [so] it was easy to show them the strengths and weaknesses of the different arguments, which I told them may require that they look into and wrestle with for a bit so they are able to answer when asked about creation. They both said they were embarrassed until tonight to ever share that they believed in creation because quite honestly, they did not believe it, so they told me. Now they do, but with confidence and explanations to accompany it.
I am so blessed every day by this journey and adventure. . . . I am so thankful for your work and all those who help and support you in ministry because God has truly used you all to reveal how intimately and constantly God is involved in creating, preparing, and sculpting the unfathomably intricate details required to provide a habitable home for us. I am thrilled. . . . Thank you!
Because of your support, Paul’s sister and brother-in-law’s confusion has turned into confidence in our Creator. Not only that, but now Paul’s family will have the same opportunity to share what they are learning with others who are seeking. Thank you for joining us in this journey of engaging and equipping. We are blessed by your partnership!
