What Holds It Together

“A guide took a group of people through an atomic laboratory and explained how all matter was composed of rapidly moving electric particles.

The tourists studied models of molecules and were amazed to learn that matter is made up primarily of space. During the question period, one visitor asked, ‘If this is the way matter works, what holds it all together?’ For that, the guide had no answer. But the Christian has an answer: Jesus Christ!” (W. W. Wiersbe, The Bible Exposition Commentary, [Wheaton, IL: Victor Books, 1996], 2:116).
