My wife and I like hiking. One day, we went with friends on a hike near a mountain stream. We enjoyed the beautiful waterfalls that the steam had cut out of the rock. The water was so clear that I couldn’t resist kneeling down and taking a drink. You guessed it. It was fresh and cool as it ran all the way down the mountain to a river. It was the source of nurturing water for the river and the animal life round about it.
God Almighty is the source of all things. He started it all. It was from his lofty position above all things that he spoke and created a billion times a billion worlds. Then, as the source, he formed man with his own hands.
Just who is this One that has no beginning and end? He is Creator. He is the source of life and he is more than that. He is the source of all that is needed for life.
Salvation is not even possible from anyone or anything other than the source of all life. He is the one who initiates it all. The apostle Paul wrote, “He (Jesus) has reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach”. (Colossians 1:22) Paul goes on to say “in him you have been made complete and He is the head over all rule and authority”. (Colossians 2:10) Jesus Christ is the source of eternal life.
He is also the source of healing, since he knows every cell of our bodies. No matter what our theology may be, let’s consider the source of health and healing: God Almighty. God is mightier than all sickness. God knows every detail of our lives, including things unknown to us or anyone else. He is the source. Not only does he know all about us, he is able to “fix” us, since life comes from him. He is the source.
Along with salvation and healing, he is the source of “real living”. Apart from him, there is no real life. His love for us is so great and is so complete that life is full of joy, contentment, and satisfaction. That’s why, as believers, we can face life’s challenges with a calm assurance that troubles will pass without destroying us. I have know people that enjoy life this way.
What can intimidate a child of God? “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (Romans 8:35) Paul goes on to say, “no, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. (Romans 8:38,39)
The worship of God is reasonable, because he is the wonderful and glorious source. We appreciate your Comments
