Egypt’s pyramids have a worldwide appeal. Most major news media covered the intriguing discovery of a large cavity inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, near Cairo. Even without such a discovery, this pyramid is always newsworthy. It is the last of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing. Scientists, using an advanced imaging method (muon tomography), detected a large and mysterious internal structure inside the monumental tomb built around 2560 B.C. The 100 footlong (30 m) “cavity” or “void” has archeologists searching for clues as to the purpose of the cavity and what it might contain—if anything. ¬The researchers said it constitutes the first major inner structure found in the Great Pyramid since the nineteenth century. “What we are sure about is that this big void is there, that it is impressive, that it was not expected by, as far as I know, any kind of theory,” said one of the leaders of the study published in the journal Nature. “We open the question to Egyptologists and archaeologists: What could it be?” asked another expert from Cairo University. “This¬ is definitely the discovery of the century,” says archaeologist and Egyptologist and a National Geographic Emerging Explorer.
“There have been many hypotheses about the pyramid, but no one even imagined that such a big void is located above the Grand Gallery.” The greatest discovery related to ¬the Great Pyramid since the 1800s was this large gaping void discovered by muon tomography.
But the greatest personal discovery in one’s life is the discovery of the inner void—the cavity—and how to successfully fill it. Coming to terms with this empty, barren, inner wilderness is brutally difficult. People run from the discovery. They deny the “why” about the cavity’s existence. They keep running from their Creator—God.
People pack their lives with activities, pleasures, accomplishments, and advancement. But the gnawing inner void at the core of their being relentlessly craves to be filled. Sadly, many in despair, live wasted and often short lives. When they exhaust all their options to fill the cavity, they turn to more self-destructive behavior.
Perhaps you have never thought of your unsettled, restless, and discontented feelings as an inner void. But now you know what it is. Without God embraced at the core of your being, you will always have a void.
The Holy Bible tells us humans were designed with an inner capacity to enjoy an intelligent and fulling relationship with God. Sin destroyed this relationship. Our sin causes this disconnect with God and creates the inner void. The big story of the Bible is God’s incredible and amazing response to our sin. He loved us and sent His Son from heaven to be our personal Savior.
The Lord Jesus Christ died here on a cross on the outskirts of Jerusalem. The Bible says, “God commend His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). A True Christian is one who has had their inner cavity filled up with the love of God. Of Christians, the Bible says, “The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts” (Romans 5:5). The Lord Jesus said “ come unto me …and I will give you rest “( Matthew 11:28).“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).Will you admit your need and allow Him to pour into your inner cavity the love of God and experience the fulfillment that only a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ can bring?
