Jesus Is Our All In All.

“Jesus is the Lamb and the Shepherd; the Giver and the Gift; the Counselor and the Counsel; the Way and the Destination; the Teacher and the Truth; the Cornerstone and the Foundation; the Prophet and the Prophecy; the Beginning and the End.” – quote origin unknown

 
“Then, when all things are under His authority, the Son will put Himself under God’s authority, so that God, Who gave His Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything g everywhere (NIV: “so that God may be all in all”).” (1 Corinthians 15:28) What does it mean for Jesus to be our all in all? Well, I can see that we must allow Him to be our Lord over every aspect of our lives. God already is, but when we, in our pride of heart, decide to ignore Him in certain areas of our lives, assuming that we know better what we need in life than He, our creator and Savior, does, we fail to recognise that He is our all in all.

 
As the one true God, He is more important than we. “One God and Father of all, Who is over all and through all in all.” (Ephesians 4:6) “He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:17) When we remember that God has been in and through all of history, is in and through our present life situation, and is already at work in and through all of future history and eternity itself, we find comfort and peace. He has everything under control – it’s going to be ok!
