Devotion of the Day

Adan and Atom

Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 10:28.

A nervous generation reading “What To Do If The Atom Bomb Falls” needs to be reading what to do if Judgment falls. The biggest issue is still spiritual, not atomic but Adamic, not the atom in the universe but the Adam in you and what to do about it.

Jittery humans looking for a place to hide from their own inventions had better ponder the state of their hearts before the safety of their hides. “No Hiding Place” is a common phrase now, but God is still a refuge and a shelter in time of storm.

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

Quit worrying about the atom and do something about Adam. There is a “last Adam” who can make you a new creature and give you power to become a son of God. These are beyond the reach of atoms, their true life is hid with Christ in God.
