Are We Alone?
(Above: Galaxy Cluster Abell 1689The immense gravity produced by this cluster is strong enough to bend light and acts to magnify distant objects sitting behind it...objects thought to be among the most remote in the universe)
Is it conceivable that within a universe of some one billion galaxies there exists not a single planet capable of sustaining life besides Earth?
I do not possess any scientific proof to support this claim (nor does anyone possess any proof to refute it), but I do stand by God's inspired Word. The Bible reveals God's overflowing love and adoration for His Creation, especially us humans whom He made in His own likeness. We are indeed special and unique, and despite our tendencies to sin God holds us in the highest regard. So high, in fact, that He would make us His only people in the entire universe, and the focal point of His purpose.
Heavenly Father...help us to understand just how special we are to You, and how You chose to make us the center of Your existence. May we glorify You by making You the center of ours. Amen.
