(Jer. 32:7-14, Gen. 23:3-20)
THE SAVING POWER OF EVIDENCE
The entrances to the two residences of Joy and Jane were crisscrossed one faithful Friday morning by a roll of fierce-looking and heavily armed police officers from the State CID unit of the Federal Capital Territory. Before long, both Joy and Jane were swiftly arrested and whisked away for immediate detention in police custody.
In the case of Joy, the police alleged that the new car being driven recently by Joy was a stolen car. Indeed, in the course of the car theft, the owner of the car was brutally shot by the armed robbery gang, and the owner of the car was still being attended to in the intensive care unit of Asokoro hospital.
The fact of the matter is that Joy was not at the scene of the car theft. But unfortunately, the car she bought was indeed the stolen car. Worst still, the robbers had sold the stolen car to Joy with fake papers. Thus Joy needed to prove to the police that she had an alibi. Put in layman’s language, an alibi is a witness who can testify that indeed Joy was somewhere else on the said day in which the crime was committed. Fortunately, the crime in question was committed at about 11:30 A.M. on a day in which Joy had taken the first flight out of the Federal Capital Territory along with her friend at about 6:45 A.M. So, Joy’s friend was there to testify in her favour. But to the astounding shock of everyone, Joy’s friend remained staunchly unwilling to testify on her friend’s behalf. This was simply because of the envy for her friend, Joy, who had just bought a new car, and she had no car.
Suddenly, Joy remembered that her flight return ticket at about 9:30 P.M. on the same day of the car theft incident was still in her handbag which was now at her residence. Upon this information given by Joy to her sister, Myra, the flight return ticket was retrieved and presented to the police who took immediate steps to verify the return ticket. Upon verification, Joy’s story was found to be true. Thus Joy was released from police custody, and all criminal charges against her were dropped. God had used the power of evidence to save Joy.
Dearly beloved, how do you treat your receipts? Forms given to you to sign by investment houses, land dealers, boarding passes and the likes, do you bother to check that the other party has equally signed? Do you keep those boarding passes properly?
Ah! Many are in prisons today for crimes they know nothing about. They were simply careless with the only documents that could save them from problems that they did not envisage could arise.
Jeremiah the great prophet did not rely on his prophetic anointing. Rather, he insisted the evidence of the purchase of the land must be sought and obtained by Baruch. The same principle was adopted much earlier by the great Abraham. The truth is this: there are little things that count which many Christians pay little attention to. When therefore our nonchalant attitude throws us into problems, then we choose the route of blaming God or others for our misfortune.
The merits of the potent power of evidences cannot be overemphasized. Evidences can save, their absence when needed can kill. Generations yet unborn can enjoy unending peace over land or property matters simply because the power of evidence is rightly positioned in their hands. But is the case of prophet Jeremiah and the great Patriarch of faith the same with modern day Christians? Do you know dearly beloved that Christians can be so nonchalant to the extent that even to check up the expiry dates of products purchased by them is a problem? Learn unlearn and relearn the lessons of life from Joy’s escape experience.
She could have been sentenced to life imprisonment at least for an offence she knew nothing about or even sentenced to death by hanging. Thank God in her case for available evidence which saved her. Jane is yet standing trial at the Federal Capital Territory High Court with her lawyer seriously struggling to save her because the only evidence that could save her has been either washed away in her pair of gins trousers’ pocket or emptied inside the waste bin.
IN THE END, LIFE IS MADE EASY WHEN WE RIGHTLY PLAY OUR PART. FOR GOD WILL NEVER FAIL TO PLAY HIS PART.
Question and Answer Section
Question: The great questions again! When was the last time that you preached to any soul? Do you serve God with joyful heart or with reluctance? How much hurt is in your soul against that fellow? Won’t rather forgive them and forget their mischief so that you can rightly serve your loving Father? When was the last time you smiled genuinely and truly from your heart about yourself bearing in mind the bright days to come? when was the last time you heard a force praying within your belly without your consciousness? When was the last time you gave something to support God’s work apart from your tithes and offerings? When was the last time you supported any man to fulfill a divine or a personal agenda? When was the last time you put smile on the face of someone?

Backslidden – living in sin – needing fresh recommitment (say):
Christ Jesus, You are the Anointed One of the Most High. I come to you today as I am. In your mercy, help me out of my situation. Heal my soul, my spirit, my body, my life and my destiny. I acknowledge you as the only true lover of my soul. Please, deliver me on every side and save me through and through. I promise from the depth of my soul to be yours from henceforth, in Jesus name. Help me now O God. Be my Lord, my Saviour and my all in all from this day. Thank you Lord (read Ps.54 in closing and pray more).
