Although the earth is seemingly small in significance it is jam packed with abundant kinds of life & resources. After the curse at the time of earth’s first humans & after the flood at the time of Noah we witness an abundance of life as the command to go forth & multiply is divided by death & misery. And what can be said of the distant heavens & the stars that God knows each by name…wonderful, truly wonderful. Ps 147. That the Saviour, no ordinary man, came in flesh to unravel our shame at the cost of his obedient life, defeating Satan, hell & death is cause for great thanks.
