The human machine
Think a minute…Can you imagine life without machines? If we didn’t have cars, buses, telephones or radios, we’d be lost without these basic machines we use every day.
But a machine only helps your life if you know how to use it. It reminds me of the old chief from the jungle who came to town because he was asked to make a speech on the radio. The old guy had never been in a radio studio or seen modern gadgets like a microphone before.
So when the radio host gave him the microphone, this jungle chief grabbed it and put it up to his EAR to give his speech! Machines and gadgets are great—if you know how to use them correctly.
Do you know the most sophisticated, advanced machine ever invented? It’s you and me! The human machine.
In fact, the more that scientists and doctors discover about the human body and brain, the more they learn what an amazing computer and machine we human beings are.
Our mind, body, emotions, and will make up the total person that we are. You see, the only one who knows everything about how the human machine works correctly is the One Who designed and invented us. God made us differently from all the other animals which have no ability to choose in their lives. They do everything simply by instinct. But we are free to think with our mind and conscience to make our own choices how we live. God did not make us robots that He controls and forces to live the right way.
Sadly, since we’ve all chosen to be stubborn and self-centered, we’ve used our freedom wrongly. We even think we know better than our Maker and Inventor what will make us happy.
We’ve all chosen to live our own way, instead of using our bodies and minds the way God designed us to enjoy life—the right way that works. God’s commands are not to stop us from having fun. It’s just the opposite!
The Bible is simply the manual and instruction book for the human machine, so we can keep enjoying life without hurting ourselves and breaking down. Jesus our Designer shows us His blueprint for success and satisfaction that lasts.
But it’s never too late to get your life fixed and working correctly again. So why not ask Jesus Christ to forgive you for living your own way?
Then ask Him to take charge so you can start living His right, successful way. It’s the only way you’ll ever enjoy your life fully the way it was meant to work. Just Think a Minute…
