I sat through a Power Point presentation today that said absolutely nothing. When it was over I had to conclude that the presenter had been told to give a report and to justify his salary he got very creative using nothing. At first I wanted to say that is what God did on Creation Day. He got very creative using nothing, except God ended up with a marvelous product unlike the Power Point presenter. But upon second thought perhaps God did not make us out of nothing. We can turn matter into energy. Perhaps God does just the opposite and takes energy and turns it into matter. Move over Albert E. The Creator is in the house.
“By the Word of the Lord the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.” Psalm 33:6 doesn’t mean it was magic. It was science and we came from His omniscience. He didn’t say “Abracadabra” and it happened. He said, “Let us make man in our image.” Our making required so much knowledge and design that our finest researchers are still just beginning to open the secrets of knowledge required to breathe the breath of life into us.
Nothing comes from nothing. One would have to wait forever for something to come from nothing and even then it would still be nothing. Now isn’t that something. Yes, we are something and it’s a very special something. We are the sons and daughters of that Creator designed to live forever and do some creating of our own. He has made us thinkers just like Himself. Now if only that Power Point presenter could have been a thinker I would have had a better day.
