All Things

“But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by Him” (I Corinthians 8:6).

This small but comprehensive phrase—“all things”—occurs over 150 times in the New Testament, and reveals some slight glimpse of the greatness of God’s power and majesty. In the context of this particular verse, Paul is refuting the evolutionary pantheists of his day, stressing that all things in the universe were “of” the Father, and “by” the Son. “God . . . created all things by Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 3:9; see also Revelation 4:11; Colossians 1:16; John 1:3). Furthermore, when He first created all things, “God saw every thing [same as ‘all things’ in the Hebrew] that He had made, and, behold, it was very good” (Genesis 1:31).

He is now “upholding all things by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3), and every day He “giveth to all life, and breath, and all things” (Acts 17:25). Sin has brought God’s temporary curse upon “the whole creation” (Romans 8:22), but He has “made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself” (Colossians 1:20).

Therefore He has promised “That in the dispensation of the fulness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ” (Ephesians 1:10), and then He will “make all things new” (Revelation 21:5), and “all things shall be subdued unto Him” (I Corinthians 15:28).

In view of the comprehensive power of our Creator and Savior, we who are “in Christ” should never doubt or fear. “He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32). “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God” (Romans 8:28). “For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen” (Romans 11:36). HMM
