Christ Made The World

Think about the world into which our Lord Jesus Christ came—it is actually Christ's world! Every section of this earth that we buy and sell and kick around and take by force of arms is a part of Christ's world. He made it all, and He owns it all. Jesus Christ, the eternal Word, made the world. He made the very atoms of which Mary was made; the atoms of which His own body was made. He made the straw in the manger upon which He was laid as a newborn baby. Let me digress here. I hear an occasional devotional exercise on the radio, in which the participants solicit, "Mary, mother of God, pray for us!" It is only right that we should express our position based on the Word of God; and the truth is that Mary is dead, and she is not the "mother of God." Mary was the mother of that tiny babe, for God in His loving and wise plan of redemption used the body of the virgin Mary as the matrix to give the eternal Son a human body. We join in giving her proper honor when we refer to her as Mary, mother of Christ.

Verse

God hath spoken unto us by his . . . by whom he made the worlds. Hebrews 1:12

Thought

Every section of this earth that we buy and sell and kick around and take by force of arms is a part of Christ's world. He made it all, and He owns it all.

Prayer

Lord, we only do You honor when we look at You in the right light. You are our God, the Creator of all, and the great I AM. I recognize that there is nobody else in that category. No created thing can create the Creator.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
