We Are Not Alone
In 1982 a movie came out that absolutely stirred me as a 13 year old boy. The summer blockbuster was none other than E.T. E.T. was an alien that becomes stranded on planet earth but through a few turn of events becomes a friend to a young boy named Elliott. And while this movie rocked the box office the thought that stirred our country was "we are not alone".
Fast forward many years, I was leading my first church in Lebanon, Tennessee and Paige our first daughter was about 6 years old. While watching T.V. one night a program came on that discussed the possibility of aliens in our universe and beyond. I turned to Paige and asked her "do you believe Aliens exist?" Her response was amazing. Paige said, "If they do, God created them."
Today, I am proud to announce that we are not alone! Have I discovered proof that aliens exist? No. What I do know is this....If you are a born again Christian....a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ...then you are not alone. The very Spirit of Christ lives within you. You are not alone.
1 Corinthians 6:19 says, "Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own."
The Holy Spirit indwells each and every born again believer. When you turn to John chapter 16 you will find many verses that outline the responsbilities of the Holy Spirit and how He is our helper. When we grasp the fact that the Holy Spirit lives within us and He is our helper who goes with us....it should give us confidence that we are not alone. God has not saved us then simply turned us out to pasture to do as we please and fend for ourselves. No. We are not alone and we have much help.
So, do aliens exist? I don't know. But what I do know is this....with the Holy Spirit living within us we can have confidence that whatever comes our way, God is with us and will help us. We are not alone.
