Let me help you understand the scope of God’s greatness. This is the history of the world in one sentence: “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.” I don’t have to know your story, but this is the testimony of your salvation in one sentence: “For from Him and to Him and through Him are all things.” This is the story of your life in one sentence: “From Him and through Him and to Him are all things.” God is the first cause and the effective cause and the final cause of all things. He’s the source, the Sustainer, and significance of all things. He’s the source and the force and the course of all things. He is the Originator of all things. He perpetuates all things. He terminates all things. He is the foundation of all things, the Being of all things, the purpose of all things. He is Alpha and Omega and every letter in between. “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.”
