“From him and through him and unto him are all things! He is the origin, essence and conclusion of our individual lives!” – Francois du Toit
This sums up the purpose of our life – that we are created by Jesus and for Him. We came through our parents from Him, therefore we live as unto Him. He is the beginning and the end of our life. He is the centre of our life – our whole life revolves around Him. He is the “one thing needful” that we can draw our purpose and fulfilment and nourishment from. 🙂
Life lived apart from Him is life under the sun, meaningless and chasing after the wind. But life lived for Him is a life above the sun, where we soar like eagles and enjoy His warm fellowship.
When we see Jesus in the Scriptures, we find ourselves in Him because that is where our true identity comes from. We are made in His image. The more we behold His glory and grace, the more we will be transformed into His same image from glory to glory, in every area of our lives. 🙂
“For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.” (Romans 11:36)
