Romans 6:16 -18

16. “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

17. But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.”

God’s revealed message to man

  • Over a period of about 1600 years
  • Historically accurate

He has names for all the stars

Psalms 147:4 “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.”

He knows the number of hairs in my head

SURELY HE KNOWS MY NAME !
