All Things Are Through Him

"For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen."
Romans 11:36

This is Paul's spontaneous song of praise. God is the originator of all blessings. They come from Him. They come through Him. And they are all for His glory. "Through Him were all things—from the high archangel who sings His praises in celestial notes—down to the cricket chirping on the hearth. The same finger paints the rainbow and the wing of the butterfly. He who dyes the garments of evening in all the colors of Heaven has covered the kingcup with gold and lit up the glowworm’s lamp. From yonder ponderous mountain piercing the clouds down to that minute grain of dust in the summer’s threshing floor—all things are through Him. Let but God withdraw the emanations of His Divine power and everything would melt away as the foam upon the sea melts into the wave which bore it!" -- Charles Spurgeon. To God be the glory forever.
