I believe that the Earth is very special. The Genesis account of creation focuses almost entirely on the formation and development of Earth.
The prophet Isaiah states: “Thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited.” – Isaiah 45:18
To date, Earth is still the only known inhabited planet in a vast universe. That makes us pretty unique. But, for believers, there is something far more significant.
Not only does man live on Earth, but the Creator Himself, in the form of Jesus Christ, came to this Earth to live as man, die for our sins, and offer redemption to the world.
John 1 says “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
Yes, that makes Earth very special. “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

Truly, the Heavens Declare the Glory of God.
