He [Christ] existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.
I love this verse. It’s one of my favorites. To think that without God the world falls into chaos. The same is true for us. When we leave God out of our lived it begins to fall apart.
I believe that were are all emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical beings. These four aspects make up who are and if one of these things if off balance everything goes wonky. What do you think holds all these aspects together? Jesus. Jesus holds all creation together—even us.
I have seen this principle lived out in my own life. If my life seems out of order—my healthy diet is out the window, my finances are a mess, my apartment is disorganized and cluttered—nine times out of ten it arises from my lack of connectivity to God. The other times is because I really am just too busy.
Do you find this principle true in your own life?
