I never cease to feel shock and awe when I consider the universe our God has made. From the incalculable reaches of the heavens to the microscopic particles of life swimming around in our cells God gives us a glimpse of His indescribable creation.
My daughter posted this picture on her Facebook page with the caption, “I found religion under my microscope”. She said she was referring to the crosses she saw in the dried crystals of the cell. She is a continuous source of pride for me. She has accomplished so much more than I could have imagined. And she was one of my major motivations for losing weight.
This next photo was taken by the Hubble Spacecraft that can peer into deep space and return never-before-seen images of what deep space looks like. The image appeared in a video presentation by Louis Giglio called Indescribable. Giglio is Senior Pastor of the Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia. The image is called the “structure” in the core of the Whirlpool Galaxy 31 million light years away. That’s 31 million. That’s light years.
The Hubble Spacecraft’s “structure” is the image of the cross of Christ. You can’t call it scientifically a cross. Call it what you want. It is the image of the cross of Christ, who was the image of the invisible God. And it reflects the Son’s light (and presence) in the farthest reaches of the universe.
My daughter’s “religion in the dried cells” is the image of the cross of Christ.
Both images remind me that Christ is everywhere. He is present in the deepest regions of space and He is present in the core of our being. He is love. He is grace everywhere you turn. He is mercy when you least expect it.
We can take indescribable comfort from knowing that.
