“Hello- is this planet earth?” asked Tim Peake, a British astronaut. He was calling from the International Space Station intending to reach NASA. But when a very surprised lady answered the phone, Peake realized he had reached a wrong number. However, viewing our present world, many will find his question “is this planet earth?” relevant. In the book of Genesis, we read, “God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.” Later Paul explained the impact we have had and are having on our world, writing, “… just as through one man (Adam) sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned…” We have really messed things up. Thankfully, Paul was later inspired to write that for those who turn from ungodliness and place their faith in the Savior, “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” What a great way to start the new year.
