My deep-thinking granddaughter, Kaia, informed me of this thought last Sunday morning. “Nothing is something”, she said.
I believe her concept is right. Even if we look across the landscape and see nothing and say there is nothing, there is still something, even if it is only light and air.
The nothing we sometimes feel in ourselves when we think we are useless and have no purpose in life, even then nothing is something because we exist and we are something.
After much discussion on this topic, the very next day I came across this Bible verse in my morning study.
I resolved to know nothing, (to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing, and to be conscious of nothing) among you except Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and Him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:2, AMP)
So you see when any of us feels we are nothing, that life offers nothing, that no one cares about us or that the universe is full of nothing…There is always the truth and promise of the Something in our nothing.
And that Something is the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah and him crucified.
Prayer- Lord, thank you for showing us that we are wrong about our nothingness. The truth is that what we see as nothingness is indeed the fullness of Christ. Amen.
