Our CR group went to see Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman here in Houston Saturday night.
What a great show! It met and exceeded all expectations. Three hours of praise and worship with two of the most prolific christian songwriters. I have never been to a concert where I literally knew the words to every song sung!
A man named Louie Giglio spoke too. I had never heard of him before and wow what a talk he gave.
I'm going to break it down a bit. As best I can.
The name of the talk of course was How Great is Our God. Fitting since that is the name of the concert tour.
Psalms 33:6 The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the Word and all the stars were born.
Another translation is that God Breathed the stars.
Louie then compared the earth to the sun in size. The gist was that in comparison the earth is a golf ball compared to the sun.
He went on to compare other, even bigger stars to the size of the earth like Canis Major (the dogstar).
In other words beloved, these stars that he breathed, or spoke into existance were huge!
When scientists pointed the Hubble Telescope into the black hole in the center of the milkyway galaxy this was the picture.
Then to show the intricacy of God and how perfectly he designed us Louie broke it down to the sub-atomic peptides called laminin. Laminin is the foundational glue that hold our cells together.No matter how awesome He is. Despite all He has done and will do. He loves us no matter what. He loves us so much that He gave us His Son as Sacrifice for our sins.
How Great Is Our God Indeed!
