Theme: THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
Text: “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun” – Psalm 19:1-4
Comment: Anyone who looks into the heavens, especially with the aid of scientific instruments will be astonished at the number of stars that hang out there. Even the earth is hanged “upon nothing”. (Job 26:7) A Russian cosmonaut was once reported as saying, “Some people say there is a God out there: I saw no God. No God helped build our rocket. The rocket was made by our people, I don’t believe in God.” Contrarily, Colonel John Glenn of America after his space-travel, wrote of “the orderliness of the whole universe around us”. He asked: “Could this just have happened? Was it an accident that a collection of solid masses of material, like our sun, stars, the planets, etc, suddenly started making these orbits of its own accord? I cannot believe that. This was a definite plan. This is one big thing that shows me there is a God. Some Power puts all this into orbit and keeps it there.”
God put people on earth to worship Him; this purpose must fulfill from age to age and fully in God’s Kingdom fully established. One would then better appreciate why David stated, “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? …O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!” – Psalm 8:3,4,9.
