Jesus – physics – Newtons Third Law of Motion

A force is a push or a pull

Forces result from interactions

According to Newton, whenever objects A and B interact with each other, they exert forces upon each other.

When you sit in your chair, your body exerts a downward force on the chair and the chair exerts an upward force on your body. – Cancels out so you don’t float away cause the chair is too strong or you don’t sink into the floor and into the earth cause you’re too heavy (although that could be debatable)

Anyway,… these two forces are called action and reaction forces = they form Action-Pairs

Forces always come in pairs – equal and opposite.

A fish uses its fins to push water backwards.
This accelerates the water backwards, the water must also be pushing the fish forwards, propelling the fish through the water.

Or here’s a beautiful one. Have you noticed when a bird is flying that when its about to beat its wings (push down) , as its wings go up to get ready for the next beat (push) they bend their wings so each wing can slice through the air. The same way you crouch down before you jump high. A bird’s wings cut up through the air but bent. Almost as if they were gathering under their wings as much air as possible. Then BAM! The wing beats down but by then the bird has extended its wings fully out all the way to the tips and spread the feather to create as big a “wing-span” as possible. Newtons third Law here is showing in the actions of the bird. The bigger the wing span and the harder it beats down, then the more air gathered under its wings that can push the bird back up! So its up down up down up down. And all the bird is doing is crouching and jumping from one “pocket of air” to another. Sublime.

(that’s why the Bible says, since the beginning, all nature has been declaring the glory of God and therefore we are all without excuse)

We together so far?

So where does Jesus come in?

Well 1st Physics cant totally contain God, thank God. But it can help us understand.

God created in you and me, as believers, an Action-Pair. The moment sin pushes you backwards, the Holy Spirit reacts and pushes you forward.

— For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

As you beat down in sin, cause we know we all stubborn like that, the Holy Spirit (grace, for the Gospel of Jesus Christ is power) pushes you (picks you) back up IMMEDIATELY. He can’t help it, its His job, its why He was sent. Cant do nothin else.

But remember physics cant completely contain God. Jesus is bigger than Newtons 3rd Law. Here is the first Law of JC (discovered by Paul, PS JC is Jesus Christ just in case you missed that). And it states

: — Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,

… See in God’s 1st Law of Salvation – for every sin, there is an Unequal and opposite reaction. [If you’re a believer, you should have experienced this and know what I’m talking about)

Shalom! (peace out)
