So How big is Our Universe anyway?

I love this story. Dr Ravi Zacharias recalls one of his professors, “…a quantum physicist, describing what the first few microseconds of the creation of the universe would have looked like. He described in great detail the how contraction and expansion ratio had to be so precise and the margin of error so small. And he added that the exactness demanded of that moment was such that it would be the equivalent of taking aim at a one square inch object ~ twenty billion light years away ~ and hitting it bull’s eye!

Wow! Who wouldn’t want to worship a God like that? I need a BIG God. How about you?

ARTICLE TEXT

SO HOW BIG IS OUR UNIVERSE ANYWAY?

Here’s what we look like compared to some of our neighbours in the universe. Check out how big Jupiter and Saturn are compared to us!

Hmmm…. Now look how small we all are, compared to the sun! Even Jupiter is looking small now! Stop for a moment and think about how enormous our sun is compared to us… then look below.

Here’s our sun compared to YV Canis Majoris – one of the biggest and brightest stars found out there so far! Woah! Look how tiny our sun is! If the earth was the size of a golf ball, VY Canis Majoris would be the size of Mount Everest! Gulp! Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope tell us it is 500,000 times brighter than our sun and about 30 to 40 times more massive! It is 5,000 light-years away. That means, if we could travel at 300,000 km/186,000 miles per second for 5000 years, we would eventually get there.  

And the Bible tells us that the Creator God who made all that wants a relationship with me and YOU! How cool is that!

When I look at the sky which you have made, at the moon and the stars which you set in their places – what is man, that you think of him?  Mere man that you care for him?  (Psalm 8:3-4)

WHO IS JESUS?

Jesus Christ is God Himself! He is the visible likeness of the invisible God… Through Him and for Him God created everything in heaven and on earth, the seen and the unseen… God made peace through his son’s death on the cross and so brought back to Himself all things… (Colossians 1).

LOVE BEYOND REASON

For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, so that ~ anyone ~ who believes in him may not die but have eternal life (John 3:16).  That’s me ~ and YOU! 

God loved ~ YOU ~ and chose ~ YOU ~ for His own.  Colossians 3:12
