Survival Of The Unfit

"Ye were . . . redeemed . . . with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot" (I Peter 1:18-19).

Darwin's theory contemplates survival of the fittest and death to the unfit. God's truth proclaims the opposite! Jesus, the fittest of all ("without blemish and without spot") and sustainer of the entire universe (Colossians 1:17), died so that the unfit might survive! We see Him on the pages of Scripture reaching out to the blind, lame, and dumb; we see the compassion of One who cared for those blemished with leprous spots; we see Him stop a funeral procession and raise the dead!

He offered His "precious blood" to redeem unfit people like us. He took death upon Himself so that blemished sinners might survive and experience eternal life. Even death was unable to hold this One in its grip. Jesus proved His fitness over death itself! "The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted" (Psalm 18:46).

Some have tried to further life along a supposed path of evolutionary advancement, but the redeemed follow a different path. May we who were once unfit--blemished with sinful spots but now washed in His precious blood, follow the lead of the fittest-of-all by extending our hearts and hands to those who are not surviving very well. May we go to hospitals, love and assist deformed children, care for the poor, and feed the starving. May we share the best news of all--that the fittest came into this world so that the unfit might survive for an eternity with Him in heaven. Jesus said, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:28-30). PGH
