Psalm 139: 13-16 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

 

I walk up to the door of the school office. Before I can enter and sign in at the front desk, I must enter my security passcode and look up at a computer camera which verifies my identity, using facial recognition.

Fingerprints.   DNA.  Voice.  Security questions.  Birthdate and social security number.  These—Or a combination thereof—are also used worldwide to help us make sure who we are admitting into our space.

God doesn’t need any of this because He created us.

He knew us even before we were formed in our mothers’ wombs.

He planned everything about us, so how we look and the essence of who we are is no surprise to Him.

He even knows our thoughts—even the bad stuff–and thankfully, He still loves us.

Still forgives us.

And, if we accept His free gift of salvation, He will grant us admission—not based on facial recognition, but because He sees our soul, cleansed by the blood of His one and only Son.
