Colossians 1:19 “For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;”
“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 of history is culminating in this one thing.
Do you know why the world was created? Jesus. Do you know why the Holy Spirit ministers? Jesus. Do you know why there is going to be a final judgment? Because “every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of the Father.” Philippians 2:11
Hitler and Hemingway will confess it. Buddha and Mohammad will confess it. Non of us can change the 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.”
