God’s Grace with Gary 5/2/22

Hello, this is pastor gary from first baptist church of laplata. Before today’s devotion, I want to assure you that the robotic voice you heard on Monday and Thursday of last week is not an experiment or a trend but rather was due to the fact that I had lost my voice. I will continue to come to you in my natural voice except when I am unable to do so. Now, on this date in history in 1933, the Loch Ness Monster news story made its debut. The creature was supposedly spotted in April by a Scottish couple who saw “an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface,” and the media frenzy began. The so-called monster has a long neck and humps on its dorsal side—much like the aquatic dinosaur known as a plesiosaur. Through the years, researchers have used sonar, underwater photography, and satellite mapping but have not found Nessie. Undeterred, the legend lives on; in fact, as of today, there have been 1140 official sightings of the elusive creature—four of which were just last month! Should the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, or the Abominable Snowman ever be discovered, what will that do to our faith? Not a thing. Since new creatures and species are being discovered all of the time, these will just be additional animals that God created about which we did not previously know. God is the Creator of all that exists both big and small, seen and unseen, discovered and yet to be discovered. The Bible mentions behemouth and leviathan—super large animals; modern interpreters dismiss these creatures as either mythological or references to hippopotamuses or crocodiles, but I don’t. The Bible seems to be describing what we now call dinosaurs, and the Scottish seem to be doing the same thing with Nessie.
