I finally taught myself how to do the Rubik’s Cube by learning the algorithms. But I keep forgetting the algorithms. So I still need my children to solve it for me.
But why do we have this obsession with the Rubik’s Cube?
Why can’t we just leave the Cube messed up?
Because deep down we have a God-given desire for order, design, and beauty.
Things have a right place. Things need to be where they belong.
But we also live in a messed up, broken world. And our lives are also messed up.
We’re powerless to put things where they should be.
But that’s why God sends us his Son Jesus into the world.
Jesus is the ultimate Algorithm behind the universe.
So if we hand our lives over to Jesus, we will be in place with the True Algorithm.
Jesus will put things where they should be.
But sadly, Jesus won’t fix our Rubik’s Cube. For that, we’re still going to need a 10-year-old to help us.
John 1:14 – And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (ESV)
Colossians 1:15-20 (ESV)
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
