From the Words of Jesus
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” John 3:3-7
I was eating a piece of watermelon some years ago and was struck with its beauty. I took some of the seeds and dried them and weighed them. I found that it would require some five thousand seeds to weigh a pound. And then I applied mathematics to that forty- pound melon.
One of these seeds put into the ground, when warmed by the sun and moistened by the rain, takes off its coat and goes to work. It gathers from somewhere two hundred thousand times its own weight and, forcing this raw material through its tiny stem, constructs a watermelon. It ornaments the outside with a covering of green. Inside the green it puts a layer of white, and within the white, a red core; and through the red it scatters seeds, in some varieties black, in others dark brown, each one capable of continuing the work of reproduction.
What architect drew this plan? Where does the little seed gets its tremendous strength? Where does it find its coloring matter? How does it collect its flavoring extract? How does it build a watermelon?
Until you can explain a watermelon, do not be too sure that you can limit the ability of the Almighty to say just what He would do or how He could do it. Everything that lives, in like manner, mocks by its mystery, beauty and power, the proud intelligent of presumptuous man.
