During the months of April and May, the Abundant Grace family will be thinking about this big idea.
Physicists have been searching for a Theory of Everything (ToE) which is defined as a ‘single all-encompassing coherent theoretical framework that fully explains and links together all physical aspects of the universe.’ They have not found it yet.
We who believe in the existence of God understand that He Himself is the single all-encompassing power who links together all aspects of the universe. Our Creator God is the One who is holding everything together, who is unifying all things (Colossians 1:17). God ‘sustains all things by his powerful word’ (Hebrews 1:3). If God ‘withdrew his spirit and breath, all mankind would perish together and man would return to the dust’ (Job 34:14-15).
We can thank God that we don’t have more chaos and disorder that we do have. God is more powerful than Satan who is the master of mayhem ever seeking to tear apart all that God has made.
Over the next several weeks we will be talking about unity in the church, unity in marriage, unity of the Bible, unity of creation, unity in God’s plan of the ages, unity in human nature and our union with God. How can we solve the tense interpersonal conflict and replace it with sweet harmony? How can we have peace and a well-ordered life? What is God’s plan for entering the realm of shalom where there is peace, health and wholeness? This is what we will be thinking about together on coming Sundays. Join us!
