The Incredible Egg
Among the wonders in nature, eggs hold a top place. The mystery of the hatching of an egg cannot be explained by any of the great minds of the world. Eggs hatch in multiples of seven days. The eggs of a potato bug hatch in seven days; those of a canary in fourteen days. Hen eggs hatch in 21 days and duck eggs in 28 days. One specie of the mallard hatches her eggs in 35 days. The eggs of the parrot hatch in 42 days. Things do not happen by chance in nature. God ordains all the affairs of life, whether it be in the animal kingdom or the vegetable kingdom.
How is it that the beautiful feathers of the peacock on which are accurate markings, come out of an egg which contains only yellow yolk and a white or colorless albumen? How did the colors get there? How is the figure formed on the feathers in such a way that when the tail is spread the markings are perfectly in place and beautiful in appearance? God programmed it that way in the beginning. Only the living God could do that.
Some folks think it all happened by chance over millions and millions of years by evolutionary change. Imagine walking into the woods and finding a wrist watch. Would you say it got there through millions of years of evolutionary change? No! You would consider that an intelligent mind designed and put together the watch and some careless soul left it behind.
Even so, a universe of order and beauty demands an intelligent, all powerful, Master Creator. He is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says in Colossians 1--"For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist."
God made the heaven, the earth, the seas, and all that are in them. God made you. God made you that you might know Him and enjoy Him forever. No one has ever seen God, but God the Son, Who is at the Father's side, has made Him known. The Lord Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).
I invite you to know the living God by putting your whole trust in the only crucified, risen Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" (Acts 16:31).
