“For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”

– 2 Corinthians 5:1

One of the greatest discoveries of the 20th century is that energy can’t be destroyed. Known as the first law of thermodynamics or “The Law of Conservation of Energy,” it means that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it can only be transformed or transferred from one form to another. While I am not a scientist and don’t pretend to understand all the ramifications of this law, I do know that it speaks to and verifies the eternal nature of our lives. Since it can’t create itself, energy then, must have been created by a force outside of itself — a Creator! As Christians, we believe that the One who created both matter and energy remains the steward of it. While matter can change or even be destroyed, the energy within it is transferred with change. Therefore, although your physical body can one day change or be destroyed, the energy of your soul and spirit are eternal! 

Friend, you cannot be destroyed! Your soul is eternal and the great gift God has given to you. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, your existence is an abundant and blessed life that goes on without end. You can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are securely held, not because of your behavior or good works, but because of His faithfulness. With your spirit anchored in the steadfastness of His love, your life can loosen and blossom like a flower, drawing others to Him through its vibrancy. No matter what you face, you can stand upright in the soil of His goodness and sufficiency! Isn’t that wonderful news?


Thank you, Lord Jesus, that my eternal soul is anchored in your goodness and that no matter what comes my way, I cannot be destroyed.


What does it mean to you to know that you can’t be destroyed? How does it change the way you live?
