Colossians 1:19-20 “For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.”
“Do you know why everything happens? It is to bring glory to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. In fact, God’s Word tells us Jesus Christ is to have the preeminence in all of history. All history is culminating in this one thing.
Do you know why this world was created? Jesus. Do you know why the Holy Spirit ministers? Jesus. Do you know why there is going to be a final judgement?
Philippians 2:11 “And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Hitler and Hemingway will confess it. Buddha and Mohammad will confess it. None of us can change that fact – all of creation will acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord.
Next time someone asks you why something happens, tell them; ‘For the glory of God'”
