The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good. (Psalm 14:1, NKJV)
April 1st is April Fools’ Day, a day for pranks and practical jokes. The sentiment is lighthearted and harmless. But, the heart that says “there is no God” is not harmless. It is a mark of foolishness and corruption to deny God. Such an attitude invariably leads to sinful conduct. Goodness is eclipsed by sins of every kind. Do not be a fool. God is real. Through the gospel of His Son Jesus Christ, God is calling all sinners to give up their foolish ways and be redeemed from sin and death (Acts 2:36-41). It’s no joking matter.
