September 22

The Center of Everything

 

People can do just fine living their lives without thinking much about gravity, the rotation of the earth, friction, the weak and strong forces in atoms, and electromagnetism. A great many people also seem to be doing just fine living their lives without Jesus. Perhaps you too had a long stretch in your life when you thought about him not at all.

And yet, whether people are thinking about him or not, believing in him or not, Jesus Christ is absolutely the central organizing principle of the entire universe. “By him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible. . . . All things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:16,17). The planets move, stars shine, rain falls, wheat grows, and babies are born because Jesus Christ says so.

Life is meaningless unless you are connected to the One who designed and created you. Life is purposeless unless you are connected with the One who helps you see the divine purpose and mission of your life. Life is hopeless unless you are connected with the immortal One who promises his immortality to all who believe in him.

What do you need to do today, right now, to realign your life with life’s central Force?
