Fresh Hope – 21st November 2016

Colossians 1:15-17 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

For the universe to exist and be sustained, everything must be perfectly aligned.

If even one element of creation was out of sync, there would be catastrophic failure and we would be no more.

If the pull of gravity or the speed of light was wrong, then all would be wrong. If the sun was closer than intended we would be fried, but further away and we would freeze.

Each planet along with millions of galaxies are set and held in their perfect place without variation throughout the centuries.

Someone has taken the time to calculate the odds of how everything came to be perfectly lined up – this is how they expressed it:

“The odds would be same as a person buying just one lottery ticket twice a week and getting the numbers right every single week for 50 years!@

If that happened you would say it was a fix.

You’re right, it is.

God fixed it.
