I really enjoyed this story about Claire Lomas who took 16 days to complete the London Marathon. Why 16 days? She’s paralyzed! And she was using bionic suit! How great is that!
Just think about the other new things that are coming to help equip people with disabilities (and probably everyone else) for their service to the world for God’s glory!
But before we get too excited about how great we are in making things, we should remember that what’s hard or even impossible for us is really, really easy for God:
And great crowds came to (Jesus), bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel. (Matthew 15:30-31 ESV)
Someday God will make ‘all things new’ (Revelation 21:5) without breaking a sweat. Until then, it is good to apply time, energy and intellect to things that serve people, like bionic suits, for God’s glory and for their good.
