The Message Of The Cross - God's Plan

".....that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures..." (1 Cor.15:30).

I read a George Will op ed piece in the newspaper yesterday entitled, "New tool being prepared for finding our place in the universe." As the Hubble telescope nears the end of its life, the much more capable Webb Space Telescope is now being developed at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Will goes on to write about the uncountable billions of galaxies out there like our Milky Way galaxy, with its billions of planets. Webb will be looking back in time and analyzing light for clues concerning the earliest formation of stars, planets, galaxies, and us... Here is a sentence that caught my interest, having been a science teacher for many years... "How did material complexity, then single-cell life, then animals and consciousness emerge from chaos?" For me, I cannot disconnect God's plan for saving man without assuming that He created this universe. I cannot ponder the thoughts and spirit that reside within me and separate them from God. Jesus' death on the cross was predicted by the prophet Isaiah (ch.53) and by David the psalmist (ch.2). Just as the creation of the universe was not an accident, the message of the cross was not some random afterthought... I look at myself in terms of the universe and perceive that God has a plan for me. The message of the cross includes the plan for you too....

Have a great day... Do good and give God the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
