1. He's a Personal God
"How precious are Your thoughts about me, O God…."
2. He's a Purposeful God
This last Sunday when I preached in Stockholm, Sweden, we went by the building where every year they give out the Nobel Prizes. The same building, where in 1953, Francis Crick and James D. Watson received the Nobel Prize for discovering the now famous double helix of the deoxyribonucleic acid - DNA. Scientists have now been looking at DNA for over 50 years and they marvel at how it provides genetic information necessary to create all the proteins out of which our bodies are built. It's the DNA, this genetic information, in each of our bodies we have over 100 trillion cells that determine our physical characteristics. I'm starting a new series this weekend I'm calling the DNA of God. Does God have DNA? Yes, not so much in a physical sense. There is a certain DNA in each cell of His character. God's DNA has never changed. His genes cannot mutate. His character is consistent. The Bible says God is the same yesterday, today and forever. If I can learn just a little bit of God's DNA, His character, then I can learn more about how He wants to relate to me and what He wants to do in my own life. I'll never understand who I was designed to be until I understand the DNA of the Designer. But, before we talk about the DNA of God, I think it's important to ask - is there a God? That's a legitimate question to ask, don't you think? Most people used to say that's just a theological question because to believe in God you've got to take this blind leap of faith because there is no scientific evidence. You've got to sort of throw scientific reasoning out the window and commit intellectual suicide to believe in God. But two instruments over the last half century have changed all that and helped us see powerful evidence for the existence of God. The telescope and the microscope. With our new high-powered telescopes we've been able to see into the heavens like never before and there is so much evidence now in astronomy that points to the hand of God, but I want to focus on just one part of the evidence today from astronomy.
• The Evidence of Cosmology. Cosmology is the study of the origin of the universe. The Bible has always told us that the heavens have so much to say about God. But the stars are always talking to us about their Creator.
