Did you know that stars not only shine, but they also sing?
At the 2011 Desiring God National Conference, Louie Giglio gave a stirring message called “The Global God Who Gives the Great Commission.” During this message Louie brings the message of Psalm 148 to life in a way I’ve never seen before.
Below is an excerpt from the middle of the message. It’s about 24 minutes long, but well worth watching all the way through.
I taught an astronomy class this year through our homeschool co-op, and near the end of the course I played this sermon to my students. Some of them were noticeably moved by it suddenly realizing that when they sing songs to God, they are literally joining a galactic symphony of voices.
Louie’s message is one more reason why the study of astronomy is, for me, a way I worship God. I’m always so amazed by the bigness of the universe every time I look up. I love what Louie said in this message: “If [astronomers] knew the universe’s primary function wasn’t to house humanity, but its primary function was to magnify the Creator, they would know it’s not too big at all.”
