The moon bears witness
When you start to add up all of these things, one must start to be rather impressed by how exactly and perfectly positioned the moon is to the planet. It is exactly the right size, at exactly the right distance so as to make life possible on this planet. So much so that even nonbelieving scientists, who do not give God the credit for any of this, debate whether or not life is even possible on other planets without a moon such as ours. The moon is but a single witness to the power of God, but night after night, it stands high in the sky, keeping time, sustaining life, and speaking to the glory and wisdom of God.

Psalm When we start to have doubts, we can look to the night sky and think about those powerful testimonies to the majesty of God we see in the sky above us. God has provided well for us. He has left us a multitude of myriad witnesses to His care and affection for His creation. You can have confidence that God wants you to have life. He wants to sustain you, in this world, and in the next. Which is why He sent His Son to die for you, that you might have salvation, the forgiveness of sins, and hope for eternal life. John God has done mighty things for us, and if we will trust in Him, He will continue to work on our behalf.
If you would like to learn more about the one God who made the heavens and the earth, and of His Son who died for you, the church of Christ invites you to worship and study with us.
