God’s answer to darkness and chaos – His Glory [outshining] Job 37-39 / 1Corinthians 4-6

Tutorial for first-timers


OT

38:4-7 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. Do you know how its dimensions were determined and who did the surveying? What supports its foundations, and who laid its cornerstone as the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?”

NT

6:18-20 Run away from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. Or don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.


OT Flash Points

Creation glorifies God
Cosmos means beautiful order
In stark contrast to dark void and chaos
The very word contradicts Carl Sagan’s message in his production by that name

NT Flash Points

The Body is designed to glorify God
It is the premier outshining of God in the natural world
That is verification of God’s victory over all His enemies and their influence


Perspective

Your Word is a shovel
What You say a hurricane
Uncovering the secret treasure
Exposing my deepest desire
