[prevenient gravity… I mean, grace]

[prevenient gravity… I mean, grace]

I finished listening to my Harry Potter audio books recently and because I needed something to listen just before going to bed, I started listening to astronomy lectures by Professor James Kaler again.

As he was talking about how our solar system works, something he said triggered a memory of a discussion I recently was a part of with my mom and a couple of my friends.

Gravity…

Gravity equals the product of the two masses divided by the square of the distance between them.

What’s so remarkable about it?

Because gravity is dependent on the distance between the objects and one can never divide by zero (or stretch the distance into infinity), that means you can never escape the Earth’s gravity, even if you’re million light years from it.

Yes, the gravitational pull of our planet will be tiny and overwhelmed by the other bigger and closer objects. But Earth’s gravity will never be equal to zero.

Amazing, isn’t it? 

I also mentioned prevenient grace in the title.

If you think about it, one can never really escape God.

We might try to pretend we went too far away.

We might try to say that there’s nothing left between us.

But there is! 

There are other attractions in this life and we often feel their pull on us.

However, I do believe that God’s grace, His prevenient grace, always reaches out to us trying to remind us about home.

Sometimes we do go far.

Sometimes we forget about it.

But His love and grace are there, waiting for us to finally realize its presence.

The link to the place where we truly belong, even though we have left it back in the Garden in return for the “better” things.

God has created this world in a wonderful way. Learning about how it all works together is absolutely incredible and since one of my key strengths is Connectedness, I can’t help but see His character in His creation.

And just because I’ve been listening to this song all day long, gotta share it with you.

  • Good thoughts Zee. I love talking about grace. but I do have a question about the video. Who is digital age? Are they Ukrainian?

    • The Digital Age is American – Waco, TX 🙂 Have you heard of David Crowder Band? Well, David left the band and the guys from the band are now called The Digital Age.

      I WISH they were Ukrainian. We still are in a desperate need of cool Christian music… We do have a Hillsong in Kyiv, but one can listen to their music only so long before it gets boring.

      • Thanks for the info. I may have been the only one I know who did not like DC. I loved their music but did not like his voice. I may have to give a listen to these guys. 🙂 Know what you mean about Hillsong.

        • I’ve got memories tied to their album Illuminate… so it’s half the fact that it’s sentimental and half that his voice is… different, I guess.

          But yes – Digital Age is cool – spent the entire day yesterday listening to them. They don’t have many songs yet, but ooooh, they are good.
