“I give thee thanks, O Lord and Creator, that thou hast gladdened me by thy creation when I was enraptured by the work of thy hands…” Kepler
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.”
To understand the speech and knowledge inherent in the universe, we must study it. That’s Science. Science is the study of God’s creation, the objects in nature and what happens to them. We are surrounded by innumerable things which are constantly in motion; they grow, move, boil, fall, decay, etc… God wants us to carefully study His magnificent universe in order to understand it, subdue it, and use it for the betterment of mankind.
The student of creation is humbled, his heart is enlarged embracing all mankind, he rejoices in God’s goodness, and looks forward to God’s glorious Kingdom! As the Psalmist joyfully exclaimed,
9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.
11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;
12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.
13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
