Einstein figure that out. Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. This is the formula that transforms matter, like plutonium, or uranium, into energy.
It’s just a simple little equation, but it has profoundly changed all of our lives. It’s what we talk about – who has nuclear power and what will they with it? It’s what won WWII. For many people, this little equation is what brings electricity into their homes.
Today we’re going to see the E=MC2 of Christianity
The first part of Jesus’ response to the Jewish authorities anger had two bookends, Verses 19, 30 which describe a relationship between the Father and the Son that is so close that neither does anything without the other. Their wills are joined, their judgments are the same
So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise."This is of particular interest to you and me who have put our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Our relationship with Him is the same as His relationship with the Father.
"I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me."[John 5:19,30]
In and of ourselves we have no power. I know that flies in the face of all those self help books that tell you to reach deep into yourself and find your power, realize your potential. It’s not there, not this kind of power.
Jesus is our model. As He was one with the Father’s will, He received
* God’s vision,
* God’s works,
* God’s power
to do everything that was given Him.
So you and I, the more we willingly melt our wills with the Lord’s, we too will receive His vision, all the things He has planned for us, and the power to do it all.
This is our spiritual E=MC2.
As God works in you, He also works through you as His witness to others.
