Staring at the Sky


On August 21, 2017, an amazing event took place.  The United States experienced a total solar eclipse that stretched from Oregon to South Carolina on a 65-mile-wide path.  Some people planned and prepared for years prior to the eclipse in order to be able to have the best vantage point to view this historical heavenly occurrence.  Others spent thousands of dollars without giving a second thought to the amount because of the level of priority it became to see the eclipse.  Still, others traveled vast distances, some from across the globe, in order to have a place in the path of “totality.” They did so gladly by whatever means necessary.  An estimated $700 million was lost in productivity by those taking time to watch the phenomenon with some employers actually encouraging and allowing employees to take part in witnessing the eclipse.  For just a little while, the focus of the news and topic of conversation wasn’t about bashing politicians or racial injustices.  The evening newscast didn’t strike fear in the hearts of people with stories of threats of war and the annihilation of humanity.  No, for just a precious few moments the multitudes stood and looked in awe upon the glory of the sun.  Let that sink in for a minute.  Imagine if the same amount of people were willing to go to the same extent to stop and look in awe at the glory of the Son.  Everything else tends to fade away when we become entranced by the beauty of the Son.  In looking up at the Son we see the Christ being crucified for the sin of the world, the resurrected Savior ascending to heaven, and finally, a day yet to come of a conquering King returning in glorious victory.  One day, every last person will understand the glory of the Son when every knee bows and every tongue confesses the Jesus is Lord.  When is the last time you stood in awe, consumed by the majesty of the Son?
