Is "X" Really the Spot?
Have you ever really looked up into to sky at night and wonder how small you really are? I mean, earth is nothing but a blue speck of dust in one galaxy of who knows how many. And not only that, you are just one of BILLIONS of people on that little speck of blue dust.
Wow! Do I feel small! Sometimes I wonder just why I am on this planet and what is life worth anything. We scratch and struggle for what? You look at the universe and NOTHING we do will really matter in the grand scheme of things. Man thinks he is all that, and yet when you look at the vastness of space, we are nothing.
I went to Chris Tomlin's "Indescribable" worship concert last night. The feeling of insinificance was replaced by incredible security as we were lead to the Truth that we are created special in God's image for relationship with Him and the universe was made to declare His Glory! What at time it was!
Wow! Imagine different types of worship, different generations, denominations and expressions of worship all in one room to do one thing. . . glorify God! It was a piece of heaven! Louie Giglio gave us an incredible glimpse of God's special love for us! He talked about how vast the universe was and how small and insignificant earth is. Yet, GOD HAS CHOSEN TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH US! He made all of it for us! We are made in His image to glorify His Name!
Above is the whirlpool galaxy. In the center is an opening that the Hubble telescope finally got a good picture of. What they found was incredible . . . One more sign of His love for us!
Psalm 19: 1 says, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."
Look at HIS HANDIWORK! Even the center
of a galaxy cries of the majesty of God's work on our behalf! Many scientists do not want us to see this photo because it is too religious. It took me a while, but I found it on the internet! Scientists call it the "X center" of the galaxy. Interesting that it looks more like a cross! Even the heavens tell us about God's provision for us!
Our time last night was full of reading scripture, prayer, "traditional" hymns and "modern" worship songs. It was a time in which God was there! Imagine, a sold out crowd closing an AWESOME concert with "How Great Thou Art" being song a capella! (everyone walked off the stage)
After that, no one chanted for an encore. How can you ask the King of kings to Encore Himself??
Check out Chris Tomlin's Website! Get this wonderful CD!
And you HAVE to check out this amazing book along with his DVD (what we heard last night)
And let's not forget or British friend, Mat Redman!
It was a night where God spoke to each one of us and He was powerful! Thank you for a great night guys!
