SDO Shows the Sun in a New Light — 1 Comment

  1. And to think this is only one Star in our Universe. The gift it would be to have this type of view of just one more star before God calls me home! Whenever I view these types of images of the sun, I think of the gift of the Holy Spirit that is Fear of the Lord, or Awe and Wonder. The Old Testament warns those to reverence the Arc of the Covenant from a distance and not to touch it lest you die. In a real way, the sun is a type of metaphor of the fear of the Lord as we behold an object from afar that is beautiful and powerful, but can also be very dangerous if not given due reverence. Thank you for sharing this and for the resource!
