The Unity of All Things

If we are humble and sincere Christians, this should be one of the most welcome thoughts we have ever considered: the work of Christ in redemption will achieve ultimately the expulsion of sin, the only divisive agent in the universe. When that is accomplished, God's creation will once more realize the unification of all things. We who are men and women, though redeemed and regenerated, are submerged in time; therefore we properly say that prophecy is history foretold and history is prophecy fulfilled. But in God there is no "was" or "will be" but a continuous and unbroken "is." In Him, history and prophecy are one and the same. God contains past and future in His own Being. It is sin that has brought diversity, separation, dissimilarity. Sin has introduced divisions into a universe essentially one. We do not understand this, but we must let our faith rest on the character of God. The concept of the unity of all things is seen in the Scriptures. Paul said that God will reconcile all things unto Himself, whether they be things in earth or in heaven.

Verse

For it pleased the Father . . . by him to reconcile all things unto himself . . . whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. Colossians 2:19-20

Thought

The work of Christ in redemption will achieve ultimately the expulsion of sin, the only divisive agent in the universe.

Prayer

Lord, thank You for being the constant I AM who works in me always.
