When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained, what is man, that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him?
After the 1990’s the Bible could again be imported into Russia unhindered. Countless Russians have moved away from atheism since and turned to God. A former atheistic university professor speaks for many others with this testimony:
“I have attempted to give my life some sense by means of scientific work, but nothing satisfied me. Other scientists have sensed this vacuum, too. When I have had the greatness of the universe before me in my research in the field of astronomy, I constantly had that empty feeling in my soul. Then I started reading the Bible, and it gradually filled the vacuum. Now it is the only source of confidence that I have. When I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour, I found freedom and happiness.”
Christians are happy to know God as their Father. They realize that He alone knows the answer to the deepest heartfelt needs and can give them a true sense for their life.
Almighty God, who planned and created the universe, wants to have a personal relationship with everyone. Our Creator takes an interest in us. For that reason he sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth in order to save us. He is interested in you, as if you were the only being that He created. Therefore His call goes out to you, too: “And you, return unto your God” (cf. Hosea 12:6 J.N.D.).
