Magnet Fun and Irresistible Grace

First, the original intent of the video, to show science. Here is the original poster's comment:
Nice slow-motion footage of smaller magnets engulfing larger magnets. The self-organization is beautiful to watch...
I love magnets. Don't you love magnets? I remember in grade school, science lessons where they gave you magnets to experiment with. It was fun and absorbing.

As is this video is absorbing, mesmerizing, actually!



And now for the spiritual twist. As I was watching the little magnets be drawn to the Master Magnet, I was reminded of the verse from John 12:32,

"And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself."

Salvation is like that in the video. The little magnets were minding their own business, at enmity with God, apart from Him. And along comes Jesus, inexorably drawing the ones He has elected since before the foundation of the world, to draw unto His grace, His body, his faith.
"God’s grace is so powerful that it has the capacity to overcome our natural resistance to it." RC Sproul

Think on that ladies. He sought us, easily overcame our formidable enmity, cleaned us with His righteousness, and is now interceding for us at the throne as we draw ever nearer to Him!

Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. (Hebrews 7:25).

There is nothing that will happen to us today that is stronger than that reality.

All that the Father giveth me will come to me. (John 6:37).

  1. John 12:32 was included in the passage I read today and I've been contemplating it. The magnet illustration is a wonderful picture of that verse. Thanks for sharing it!
