Proximity to an object creates a pull. It is kind of fun to see a paperclip sliding across a desk before, it makes a little jump and sticks on to a magnet. Zap! Then it takes effort to break the connection and move the paperclip off the magnet.
How does this happen? Magnets have properties which repel or attract objects depending on their polarization. Either objects have a large amount of electrons generating a negative charge or they have fewer electrons and more protons creating a positive charge. Few things are neutral, having an equal number of electrons and protons.
To me, this phenomena is a prime example of our Christian faith. We are drawn to the LORD by His Spirit. Then we sense a connection to others that belong to the same Spirit.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself bearing witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God
Ephesians 4:4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling
1 Cor 12:13 For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body
The signs of the times are all around us. We must be light to an increasingly dark world.
The Father calls the elect to His Son through His Spirit. Let us humble ourselves to be used by Jesus to advance His mission of saving souls.
Be obedient to tell others of the hope that is within you. Then watch them be drawn into the family of God!
