It's Not About Us!

IF YOU HAVE EVER thought you were big and God was small, if you have ever been tempted to think life was all about us, here are some important scriptures to ponder. They make one pregnant point. It is not about us. Life and reality is about a big and glorious God.

(Romans 11:36) "36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen."

(1 Corinthians 8:6) "Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist."

(Colossians 1:18) "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."

(Ephesians 4:6) "One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."

(Hebrews 1:3) "He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power."

(Hebrews 2:10) "For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory..."

This is comprehensive language. Everything is from God. Everything is being upheld by God's sovereign power, and ultimately everything will be returned to God for his awesome Glory!
