Our universe is not permanent. It has been known for some time that the universe had a definite beginning. This understanding is not even the result of a deep scientific pursuit but rather can be deduced by considering that if, while travelling along a trail, you find a heap of ashes with heat still emanating from the mound, it is reasonable to deduce that a source of that heat, likely a fire, was recently burning at that spot.  Likewise, our universe is still emitting heat which indicates that the original emergence of the  universe  is not infinitely distant in history but rather a definite point within the measurable past.      

To rationally conceptualize the requirements of the existence of the temporal universe in which we live,  we must erect two distinct frameworks. One scaffold  is the temporal one we recognize as our universe and another, is an eternal superstructure that must permanently endure from which the temporal one springs.

In the understanding of the naturalists or atheists, there is no eternal superstructure. To them, the basis for the existence of our universe is an infinite regression ( and progression ) of temporal evolutions that end up, by happenstance, expressing the current iteration in which we currently reside.

Of course, any sophomore who has done mental experiments related to infinite regressions knows that such a postulation yields the impossibility of actually arriving at our particular version of the universal flowering.

This untidy fact is cautiously ignored by most current non-theistic thinkers and have no real basis for commenting on the characteristics  and condition of the universe that truly should not exist when logically constructed on their world view. At some point, however far back one would care to suppose, an infinite and conscious being must exist in order for a universe like ours to exist especially when it is smudged (however so slightly) with living and conscious beings.   

Christianity, when examined at its foundational tenets, easily asserts the infinite and conscious being at the center of its  world view as God. Christianity closes a peculiar loop in the metaphysical  explanation for existence by firstly (and correctly) identifying that an eternal conscious being must exists in order for our universe to exist. Secondly, Christianity elevates the self-aware nature of human beings as being superlatively significant. Thirdly, Christianity declares that  the self-aware properties of human beings are the direct result of being deliberately designed in the image and likeness of the creator of the cosmos. Axiomatically,  this means that humans are made not only to look like God but also made to operate like God.

Using this as an initiating circumstance, one can understand why human beings are alive, why they are conscious and more tellingly, why they are able to study the universe and its accoutrements and understand its construction and functions.  An atheistic worldview would have an extremely hard time explaining how a natural evolution of a species would result in a form of consciousness that can turn around and successfully study and understand the universal backdrop from which it emerged.

It is here where the Christian can layout a comprehensible rationale for the nature of mankind and then go on to explain our current status and the remedy offered by God for our plight which is plainly a fallen one.

An atheist cannot explain existence in general and certainly cannot explain consciousness and curiosity in particular without resorting to feeble trains of  sequential mindless events whose contingencies beggar credulity. 

A Christian rests in the knowledge that an elemental buttress of reality is baked into the fabric of the faith from the dawn of human civilization.  Irrefutably,  Christian canon has presented God with all the attributes that are a required for our existence while modern scientific endeavors have been stubbornly unyielding to the naturalist's dream of discovering the universe's fonz et origo apart from the Christian expression of God.

Further, Christianity presents Christ, a being of staggering qualities, as the exact representation of God the creator and goes onto explain that the apparent enmity between God and man can only be remedied by His suffering , death and resurrection.

For a world view to accurately posit the requirements of our universe, it should be allotted more credibility than a world view that is still claiming to be searching for the "scientific" explanation for the creation of the universe and of the living and conscious beings within it. 

Christianity is indeed credible and implores those who do not know, to accept by faith that Christ is the only salvation offered by God. 

Salvation from what?  Well, salvation from the realm of darkness into which we were born.  We easily recognize the darkness of our world when confronted by the brutish darkness of our distant and recent history and more directly, when we examine our own natures and find that we readily conform to the corrupting influences we are surrounded with. 

Christianity is, in effect, a rescue mission for the humans who are repelled by the workings and demands of the realm of darkness and are searching for a redemption into the  realm of righteousness.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

 Love never fails.

The Lord is from everlasting to everlasting. His eternal existence complimented by all knowledge, all wisdom, all light, all love and all power. 

Any of these attributes located in any other place or being is originally issued from the abundance of God.

However mighty any such other being may seem, they are but a slight vapor in the face of the Almighty God.

The Lord God supersedes any being's ability to comprehend or even imagine His power and might. 

The mighty God, as powerful as He is, is also humble. His attribute of humility and lowlyness is an astounding thing to ponder because it places humbleness as an expressed attribute of God. The vice of pride, which we can all be guilty of, is therefore completely out of place when keeping in view that the originator of the universe is Himself down-to-earth.

Humbly seek the Lord for He is lowly at heart and is approachable by those who are humble inspite of His incomprehensible power and might. In your heart, fear Him because He is a consuming fire and His reach and power are absolute.

We are but dust. We are but a vapour. What are we that God should be mindful of us?

Truly we are insignificant but the God of heaven in whose image we are made has valued us and has valued us so highly that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Our infinite value is conferred on us by our eternal Father who demonstrated how much He values us by suffering so terrifying a death on our behalf.

There is no greater love than this. 

Thanks you Jesus for your gift of salvation.

The Lord Jesus ascended into heaven and was enthroned on the highest throne and was given the highest authority over heaven and earth.

From this seat of authority at the right hand of God the Father, the Lord Jesus rules and reigns in His Kingdom in Majesty and Glory.

His kingdom is an eternal kingdom of righteousness. A major aim of  His kingdom is to bring about salvation for men by translating them out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of  our Dear Lord Jesus Christ.

As people are moved out of darkness and into the kingdom of light, the Lord our God is glorified. 

To be part of the glorification of the Lord our God, obey the Word of God as He leads  His people in paths that spread the good news of the salvation of the Christ who died for us.

Praise Him every day.  Amen.

Our lives are vulnerable to stumbling and falling. We who are righteous can get tripped up and fall. 

Remember, the Lord is merciful and gracious. When we stumble, we should not run away from the throne of grace but rather present ourselves before God with an earnest request for mercy and the administration of grace through the sprinkling of blood that Jesus shed for us.

The Lord will make provision  for those who are His. Amen.

The Lord is mighty and the Lord is good.

His mercy endures forever.

Daily give Him the honor and praise and obedience  that He deserves from us for that is our reasonable service to Him who died for us.   Amen.
