awed



I wanted to find out a bit about Francis Chan and this was the first video that came up for him on You Tube- grateful me- and now I can't get it out of my head.  Oh to see this....

I watched this with our kids on Sunday afternoon after Tim Keller taught in our living room that morning and one quote from him has been ringing in me since: "we are infinitely lost, infinitely loved."  And now, add to that, that we are microscopically microscopic.  Seeing the size of all this makes me wonder if God was simply showing us how much larger, greater he is than us?

I've been tempted to respond to this "well then, I'm too small to matter"  but No.  Scripture does not allow that view.  Itsy-bitsy for sure, and immeasureably sinfully dirty and still infinitely, intensely loved.  Oh what a God.... the One who made all this, the One who loves like this, who calls himself Father to all who trust in Him.  Praise, praise, praise be!

And one last thought, from another you tube clip called "John Piper- God's glory in his creation", (paraphrased): "When we look at this, we can see clearly:  "This was MADE!"  (And great is the Maker!)

  1. It makes Psalm 8 even more amazing! And to think- David didn't have any of this "scientific" knowledge... just a life lived under the stars...

    When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
    what is man that you are mindful of him,
    the son of man that you care for him?
