Last week we discussed how Albert Einstein’s discovery that all matter is energy was one of the most important discoveries of the twentieth century. Today I want to address “The Law of Conservation of Energy,” which states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it can only be transformed or transferred from one form to another, another great discovery during this time. While I am not a scientist and do not claim to grasp all of the implications of this law, I do know that it speaks to and affirms the eternal nature of our existence. Because energy cannot produce itself, it must have been created by an outside force — a Creator! As Christians, we believe that the same God who created matter and energy remains its steward. While matter can change and even be destroyed, the energy contained inside it is constantly moved. As a result, while your physical body can change or be destroyed at any time, the energy of your soul and spirit is eternal!
Friend, you cannot be destroyed! Your soul is eternal, and God’s great gift to you through Jesus’ death and resurrection is an abundant and blessed life that will never end. You can be certain that you are held securely, not because of your behavior or your acts, but because of His faithfulness. Your life can loosen and flourish like a flower when your spirit is grounded in the steadiness of His love, attracting others to Him through its brightness. You may remain firm on the soil of His goodness and sufficiency, no matter what you’re up against! Isn’t that fantastic news?
