“He set it all out before us in Christ, a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together and summed up in him, everything in deepest heaven, everything on planet earth.” Ephesians 1:10 The Message
Is your everything under His everything…?
Everything in your life had to be redeemed … summed up … and brought together in Christ. Everything in your life was part of God’s long-range plan … your “self-defeating words” … your “self-defeating ways” and your “self-defeating will”. Outside of Christ .. your everything is cursed. Sounds harsh? Outside of Christ .. everything on earth is cursed in a self-defeating and self-centered way of life. Jesus changes everything. His life covered everything about your life: every sin .. every good intention .. every secret .. every effort .. every moment … everything. When you gave Christ your all .. he gave you His all. That will never change .. ever! Everything you are and everything you have only takes a moment to be summed up .. completely in Jesus.
“Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating, cursed life by absorbing it completely into himself.” Galatians 3:13 The Message
