Seeing Through God’s Glass Darkly: Part 1 | Message 9

In Colossians 3 we are admonished to; Set our affections on things above. That is like telling someone to love something they have never tasted. Or telling a child who has never been to a place like Disney World or Sea World to love them. Even if you tried to describe it to them in detail, their attention span would run out long before the explanation was finished. Oh yes, once they have been there it is easy to love. So how are we going to love things above that we have never experienced?

This message is about some of the things that make it difficult for us to love a place we have never been but where everyone wants to go to someday.

Video Slideshow

This video presentation is similar to a screen saver that automatically advances with celestial images of the heavens from the Hubble, Nasa, STScI and James Webb sites. They all have an accompanying scripture, or portions which can help illustrate  Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork”.

This series on the Glory of God was originally introduced with only ten Hubble slides shown on a large screen while fifteen verses were being read.  It lasted about ten minutes.  When completed there will be around 400 images in the Video Slideshow with related scriptures.
