…how would you answer that timeless question?
The answer: everything coming together in Jesus Christ. See Ephesians 1:9–10; that is God’s meaning of life. God’s will, and God’s purpose, for everything, is ‘to bring all things in heaven and earth together under one head’. All things will be in their right place in the new creation in Christ.
God not only gives Christians the privilege of knowing this plan but also of being right in the thick of it. In fact, he chose you (Christian) to be part of His plan before you or me or anything was created. Mind blowing hey!?!
As we read the book of Ephesians this term we will go from this huge cosmic plan to the daily little details in our lives. We’ll see what it means for us as a church family in how we relate to one another, what it means for living in our district, what our marriages and families should look like, and even how we go about working. It all has to be centred on God’s grand plan of bringing all things together in Christ. Christ must be at the centre.
Let’s pray for one another to realise this glorious calling God gives us, and encourage one another to live out this glorious calling.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
