All Things

This is a chance meeting captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. It shows a rare view of a pair of overlapping galaxies, called NGC 3314.  The two galaxies look as if they are colliding, but they are actually separated by tens of millions of light-years, or about ten times the distance between our Milky Way and the neighboring Andromeda galaxy. The chance alignment of the two galaxies, as seen from Earth, gives a unique look at the silhouetted spiral arms in the closer face-on spiral, NGC 3314A.

If all great design points to a great designer, it is quite ignorant to live in this universe and believe it all happened by coincidence. 

The image above shows not one, but two galaxies. There once was a time in our brief history that we honestly believed that we were at the centre of our universe. It was at that point in human history when the majority still believed that it was God’s creation. Now that we know that we are certainly not at the centre of our universe let alone possible countless others, how is it that we can believe this wonder surrounding us happened by accident?

Colossians 1:16-17 says, “For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.  And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together).”

This of course, sparks the great debate between creation and evolution. But from a purely design perspective, I cannot look at the world around me and not be in awe of a master designer working to create every tiny, living organism as well as every massive, growing universe.
