Behold Our God!

About 53 million light-years from earth is a supermassive black hole that is the core of Messier 87, one of the largest galaxies known to man. Several billion times the mass of the sun, this black hole (like all black holes) has such a gravitational pull that nothing, not even light, can escape it (which is why we see it as a black hole). It’s hard for me to imagine a force so strong that it deforms spacetime and not even light can escape. Where does such energy come from?

Behold our God!

On the side of a large cliff is a nest made up of twigs and carefully lined with deer fur. Nestled inside are several young ravens who are too young fly and gather their own food. Miles from anyone, who will hear their cry and feed them?

Behold our God!

The Attempt to Find Purpose Without God

This  past year we had a family member suffer a stroke. As this 83 year old elderly person lost their ability to fully walk and do the things they once did, it caused me to ponder the issue of purpose. I even asked the family member what they think their purpose is in life. I even asked them what their purpose was before the stroke. Like most people, they said their purpose was to be a good wife or good mother. Their family was the main purpose in life. Now they also admitted they are just existing now. Thus, because they can’t go out and drive and go to places and do what they once did, they are not really ‘living’ anymore. What I notice in this situation and in  many situations is that people need a function. Thus, people seem to really struggle without a specific ‘function’ or ‘purpose’ in life. It should be noted that the ‘functional” and ‘essentialist’ view of humans is what is at the center of the abortion debate as well.  Anyway,  I asked the family member the following: perhaps you have been missing your overall purpose in life which is to know God (John 17: 4)?
