Absolute

Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) located in Australia, is the largest stone monolith in the world.[1] Its size is truly large. To get a mental picture of its height, imagine eight 16-story buildings put on top of each other! It is so wide that the area it takes can easily accommodate as many as 1,300 football fields! On a bright summer day, the sun relentlessly burns Uluru with its rays. It warms it but cannot do it any harm. When the sky darkens with heavy storm clouds, then fierce winds hit the rock. They put all of their strength to press the rock, but all that is left for them to do is to pass it by. In the cold season, frost covers the monolith, but even freezing temperatures cannot destroy it. As time passes, the weather changes, but Uluru keeps on standing there for thousands and thousands of years. This rock is a good illustration to the meaning of the word “absolute”. Being absolute means to be completely independent of external influences.

Everything in our world is subject to influences. People, animals, music, art, fashion, cars—everything gets old and obsolete. Living beings are influenced not only by time, but they depend on air, light, earth gravity, etc. Therefore, in our world, everything depends on someone or something. To be completely honest, even Uluru Rock gradually crumbles over time. The only One who does not depend on anyone else and who is not subject to any influence is the Lord God. The Absolute God never grows old. He does not follow people’s opinions. He is affected neither by temperature nor by gravity.  God does not depend on anyone or anything at all:

Flawless is the work of the Rock, because all his ways are just.
A faithful God — never unjust — righteous and upright is he. (Deuteronomy 32:4)

That is exactly the kind of reliable help that we need today. In your life, you can fully trust in the Absolute Lord and His Son Jesus Christ who died for our sins and who will never let us down.

· God is Absolute, He will not let you down. What doubts do you have today which you would like to share with Him?

***

But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. (John 8:23, NIV)
