This Big Spinning Ball That We Live On

This big ball we live on. One day, I was explaining to one of my children, that we live on a big ball that is spinning in outer space. I will not forget the look of uncertainty on that child’s face. Think about it. If man is supposed to be the measure of all things, and people are on a big ball that is spinning in outer space, is there something bigger than man that can be in control of this big ball? What if something goes wrong? Can man fix it? There must be something bigger than man that can protect us as we live on this big ball. How did we get here anyway? Well, we were all put here for a reason. We were placed on this big ball for one main reason and that is to bring glory to the One who created people, the big ball we live on, and everything else in outer space. Only if we can understand that, can we live in peace knowing that we are on a big ball that is spinning in outer space.

Does living on this big, spinning ball make you feel uncomfortable? The Bible tells us that Jesus, God’s only Son, created all things. In Colossians 1:16 and 17 it tells us that He created all things and by Him all things hold together. When we trust in the Son of God, it provides comfort and security for us, knowing that we are on His big spinning ball in outer space. If we reject God, or do not want to believe in Him, we put ourselves in a scary place. No one has ever asked to be born. We don’t have a choice of where we want to live, as far as the planets and objects in outer space are concerned. We are not the top dog. God is the One who made us. He gets to call the shots.
