1 Peter 3:15, “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”

REASON #1: The Universe Points to God as Its Originator.
Whatever begins to exist has a cause.
• Science itself operates on the principle that every event requires a cause. As Einstein once declared, “The scientist is possessed by a sense of universal causation.”
The universe began to exist.
• Cosmologists refer to it as the “Big Bang.” Stephen Hawking summed it up like this: “Almost everyone now believes that the universe, and time itself, had a beginning…”
• What if science is pointing to the same event described at the beginning of Genesis?
Therefore, the universe has a cause.
• The Big Bang itself calls for a cause outside of the physical universe—one that is not physical, but that is wise and powerful enough to make it all happen.

REASON #2: The Universe Points to God as Its Intelligent Fine Tuner.
Incredible Precision
• When the universe began, there were a number of variables within the structure of the universe that had to be exactly the way they are in order for life to exist.
Gravity is one example
• If the force of gravity were to change by just one part in ten-thousand-billion-billion-billion, conscious life would be virtually impossible anywhere in the universe.
Isaiah 40:25-26 & 28

REASON #3: Our Sense of Morality Points to a Moral Lawgiver.
Internal standards of morality that point to objective moral truth
A moral sense that goes beyond mere culture.
But where did we get this objective sense of right and wrong?
• Romans 2:15: “They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.”

REASON #4: Our Personal Experience Points to God
How do I know God exists? He changed my life when I put my trust in him.
Genuine personal experience is difficult to dismiss.
He is the God who creates, who loves, and who is worthy of our worship.
