The Second Law of Thermodynamics posits that all things tend toward disunity. That is, the universe is subject to entropy; everything is in an ongoing state of falling apart. (Tangents: If there is a “Law”, then pray tell me, Who is the Legislator??? Please reconcile for me this “Law” and the Theory of Evolution!!! But I digress…)
I often feel this “going to pieces” condition of life, in both outer circumstances and within myself, especially during these physical and spiritual days of darkness. And it is in that place of apparent entropy that I remind myself of Good News: There is another Force at work in creation which sovereignly overrules the theorists – the “Anti-Entropy”!
2 Peter 3 teaches that in these last days there will be scoffers who “deliberately forget that long ago by God’s Word the heavens existed…” (v.5) But Hebrews 1:3 assures me of Christ Jesus, through whom God created the universe, and who “sustain(s) all things by his powerful word.” Colossians 1:15-17 also teaches that “by him all things were created”, and that “in him all things hold together”. (Tangent: See “Louie Giglio – Laminin” @ YouTube!)
The True Light has come into the world, and the darkness has not comprehended it! (John 1:3-9) And so, when the darkness screams that I am going to pieces along with the universe, I press into and anchor my soul to the “Anti-Entropy” – Jesus Christ, who sustains me by his powerful Word and holds me together.
It’s something to think about…
