I read the 1950’s novel a couple of years ago.
Pretty disturbing stuff.
Jack Griffin is a chemist. who experiments with a mysterious drug called “monocane”. That’s how he discovered how to be invisible.
Surprise, surprise. Jack tries it out on himself.
One problem. Jack didn’t know how to reverse it.
Sometimes I feel like Jack. Invisible.
- no one really sees me.
- who I am or what I do does not matter.
Fact is, these feelings are lies from the pit of Hell.
They hide something that the
- the devil hopes
- people like you and me
- never grasp.
That’s why Jesus came to earth. To tell the truth. Destroy the lies.
That’s why Jesus talked about sparrows. Dingy little birds that were sold two for a copper coin.
Plentiful and cheap. Nothing unusual or exotic. Hardly noticeable.
Yet, Jesus said that God cared about what happened to each and every one of those tiny little birds.
Why would He not care about each one of us?
“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered,” Jesus pointed out, “Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
You. Me. We all matter to God.
He has created each one of us
- for His purpose.
- To do His will.
- To show His glory.
You don’t have to feel it. No one else may understand it.
The truth is unchangeable. Irresistible. Glorious.
