[170 words]

A college student asked his preacher, “Do you think there is life on other planets?” 

The preacher said, “No, I don’t think so.” 

The student replied, “You mean, all those billions and billions and billions of planets out there–and you don’t think there’s life out there?” 

He said, “No, I really don’t think so.” 

The student then asked, “Then, why did God go to all that trouble to make all that stuff?” 

The preacher said, “What trouble?” 

“Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee” Jeremiah 32:17 

It was no trouble! He spoke, and it was so. The only trouble that God ever had was bloody Calvary when He gave His beloved Son for humanity’s sins. 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16
