It’s back-to-school time and the universe is our classroom! Please join us for a unique family-style study with the whole Bible as our textbook. After six years we are returning to Day 4 of creation and this time we’re going to look far and dig deep. Psalm 19:1 says that the business of the heavens is to declare the glory of God and Hebrews 1:3 says that Jesus Christ is that glory. Besides holding the universe together by the word of His power, Jesus is in the business of redeeming for Himself worshippers from every tribe, tongue and nation on earth. The Bible is the story of that redemption and the heavens God made play a big role.
So starting August 13, every Saturday I’ll be posting 5 passages of scripture for the following week that have something to do with the sky, including a memory verse, discussion questions and a couple hymns to go along with our astronomy theme. Sundays I’ll post a devotional that explains how those passages work together to give us a better understanding of our Lord and His work of salvation. Fridays I’ll give our 5 boys a chance to bring you up to speed on what they’ve been learning about astronomy or we might do a flash back to something we learned in our study 6 years ago.
It’s our hope and prayer that each week we will gain a fresh perspective on the eternal gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed in the pages of scripture and displayed on the cosmic canvas of creation. Also, it would be a delight to converse with any readers from the 83 countries that followed our blog the first time around. If you’re still out there, we’d love to hear from you! Tolle lege and Soli Deo gloria!
