My pondering: All is all. By Christ ALL things were created. Everything! Visible and invisible.
ALL – THROUGH – FOR
Romans 11:36 echos this so succinctly, “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.”
This is why Jesus is special. He is so much more than a man. More than prophet. More than a miracle worker. He is God! No other religous teacher would dare make that claim….yet alone have it manifested in the mighty most awesome power of the resurrection from the dead. Now that is power!
So when other religious teachers and professors say anything other than He was, is and shall evermore be God, they are sorely misguided.
When we pray to God, why go through a man, even a priestly one?
Jesus Himself cares and awaits. Go direct via His Holy Spirit!
Not pretentious. Not prideful.
He requires humility, authenticity, repentance and trust.
He already knows us way better than we know ourselves. He desires for each of us to direct all of our will up His. To place all of our trust and all of our love with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength into and upon Him. The more of all we do that the closer to God we are.
My prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, You are my all in all. May this be forevermore expanding because You are infinite and eternal.
To know You is all I need.
