ABC's of Life
“We know that thou art a teacher come from God” Jn. 3:2.
a living alphabet. Imagine each letter as a living breathing thing.
Imagine the “A” or the “I” taking a walk together or forming a
partnership. Imagine the Greek Iota scampering beneath the skirts of
the Omicron or Omega. Such an idea is not beyond belief when we study
what is called the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) or chemical helix of
life. Scientists have discovered what they call the Rosetta Stone of
life itself. This Alphabet of Life has only four letters. The
arrangement of these four letters in various forms of pairs determines if
a being is a human being or a lightning bug. Four different Nucleotides
(adenine, thymine, cytosine, guanine) form what is called the base.
This base is combined with one molecule of phosphoric acid and one
molecule of sugar. What it comes down to is we are somewhere between
phosphoric acid and sugar. This might explain why some are sweet and
some are bitter, but perhaps that is making life too simple.
Another generation discovered that the World was round, and a lot
bigger than they had thought. Our generation has discovered the genetic
alphabet of Genesis. What are we going to do with these ABC’s (ATC’s
and G’s)? Eve wanted to try her hand at being God. When she finished
writing her story, it had a bad ending. She should have waited for God
to teach her to write better. We may know the letters, but if we don’t
know the LORD we are more likely to misspell and get the letters out of
order. Without a teacher we are liable to get things backward. If we
are not careful L-I-V-E, can become E-V-I-L. Two thousand years ago the
Teacher “come from God” came to correct our poor spelling. Not only
would He correct our errors, He would die on the cross to erase all our
iniquities and transgressions, and Oh yes, by the way, to make us
