LLLV19 3-/4/2019 James Irwin Space Walker or God Earth Walker
Since my teen years, I have been fascinated by our space program. To Captain, a Shuttle is a bucket list dream that of necessity has bit the dust. But still, the idea of space travel lingers in the now old mind and heart. There is an idea in the gray matter that is more exciting. Here is the idea best expressed by Astronaut James Irwin:
“The entire space achievement is put in proper perspective when one realizes that God walking on the earth is more important than man walking on the moon.”
James Irwin put Michael Jackson to shame when it comes to “Moon Walking!”
As a born again man, James took biblical truth seriously and the quote today bears this out.
Here’s a passage from John’s Gospel that puts Jim’s statement in perspective:
The entire space achievement is placed in proper perspective when one realizes that God walking on the earth is more important than man walking on the moon.
James Irwin, astronaut.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. (NKJV).
Concerning this wonder, William E. Booth Clibborn wrote:
“Without reluctance, flesh and blood His substance, He took the form of man, Revealed the hidden plan, O Glorious mystery sacrifice of Calvary, and now I know Thou art the great “I Am.”
It’s a privilege to wonder at the wonders all around us, including the restarting of the Space Program, but the greatest miracle of all is the wonder of God’s love for us in Jesus Christ!
