We See God's Purpose
That . . . he might gather together in one all things in Christ . . .
in heaven, and . . . on earth.
We trust the Word of God—and the inspired revelation makes it plain to the believing Christian that all things in the universe have derived their form from Christ, the eternal Son!
We are assured that even as an architect builder gathers the necessary materials needed to fashion the structure he has designed, so God will ultimately gather all things together under one head, even Christ (see Ephesians 1:9-10).
Everything in the universe has received its meaning by the power of His Word; each has maintained its place and order through Him.
Jesus Christ is God creating!
Jesus Christ is God redeeming!
Jesus Christ is God completing and harmonizing!
Jesus Christ is God bringing together all things after the counsel of His own will!
I can only hope that as we grow and mature and delight in our faith, we are beginning to gain a new appreciation of God’s great eternal purpose!
Your master design of the universe is perfect even though mankind has neglected Your creation and Your desire for fellowship. I pray that by Your Spirit our churches will become “like a mighty army” and help lead many people in the world to faith in Christ.
