“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.” (Ps 19:1)
A quick image search for ‘Hubble images’ will bring up some stunning photos of our galaxy and the galaxies beyond. Trillions of stars scatter the cosmos. Each unique and each releasing more power than a nuclear bomb EVERY SECOND. Where did all this power come from?
The heavens declare the glory of God in two ways. One, they remind us of our smallness and that such smallness reflects that something very, very powerful must have created all of this. And two, it reminds us of our privilege in the cosmos.
The farther we look, the more convincing the evidence becomes that we are alone. SETI has provided zero evidence of extraterrestrial life, and the research of the constants needed for a planet to sustain life have piled up to the point that statistically, it is shocking that we are here. This world is finely-tuned and we live on a privileged planet that gives every sign of being designed to sustain life.
And design requires a Designer.
Matt 4:4 #Biblebites
