Pale Blue Dot

Watch the video. Full Screen. Headphones. HD. You know the drill...

Humbling isn't it? And yet, we feel special too. Privileged to live in such a vast universe. Thankful for that pale blue dot.

I come away from this video sad, however, because the author, Carl Sagan, makes this comment: "In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."

And yet the truth is... That help has come. There is a hope that we have in Christ.

God came down.

To save us from ourselves.

The Ruler and creator and master of all of the cosmos... Came to live with us...

On our pale blue dot.

Breathe that truth in today. Rest in it.

Because he came down and was humiliated on this pale blue dot.
He came down and was brutally killed on this pale blue dot.
And he was buried and laid down only to become as insignificant as anyone else who has ever lived on this pale blue dot.
But then...

He changed something.

As the entire universe waited. Cried out. Watched. Listened.

The eyes of the universe turned toward our insignificant pale blue dot... as resurrection occurred.

And this Jesus?

He has promised that he is coming again to this pale blue dot.

There is hope.

SO, I am sorry Mr. Sagan, but help has come.

We have become saved from ourselves. The question that remains is... Do you accept it?
