On June 11 we began a series on the harmony of science and Christian faith. All truth is God’s truth so whether we are learning about creation through scientific pursuit or learning about God or His world through the study of scripture, all knowledge is His. The problem comes in accurate interpretation of both the created order (general revelation) and the Bible (special revelation).
For this Sunday, we get humbled. In order to know God, we must humble ourselves and come to Him through Jesus Christ. Usually “to be humbled” in the Christian sense is to know our sin and shame and long for a cure, but another way to be humbled is to know God’s size and our lack thereof. Today we explore the stars, and realize that the science of astronomy shows distinctly God’s size and ours. It’s humbling, but will leave us in awe at the size of our maker. Our sermon this Sunday is titled, "God is GREAT, We are Small" and is based on Genesis 1:16, Deuteronomy 4:19, Psalm 8:3, Psalm 147:4, and Psalm 148.
