Colossians 1 Verse 16: “Because by Him everything was created in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible. whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—-all things have been created through Him and for Him.”
Jesus is the glue that holds together all the moving parts of the universe. He is the preserver of creation. He keeps the entire universe in proper position and in delicate balance.
He sees to it that the oceans are confined to their boundaries. He makes sure the rivers flow to the sea. He sees to it that the planets stay in their orbital courses and that the earth maintains its proper distance from the sun, which is 93 million miles. Jesus keeps the earth on its proper axle rotation, an orbital revolution of 1,000 miles per hour. He makes sure the earth stays on its 23 percent tilt, providing us with four seasons. If it were not tilted, vapors from the ocean would move north and south and develop into monstrous continents of ice.
He also makes certain the moon stays the correct distance from the earth so the tides will properly flow into the harbors to cleanse them. He maintains the earth’s atmosphere at 78 percent nitrogen and 21 percent oxygen, the exact mixture required to maintain life. He synchronizes the rain cycles and wind speeds. Without Jesus upholding and sustaining the universe, it would spin out of control and disintegrate.
Is Jesus the number one issue in your life, in your home, in your character? Jesus is God creating, God communicating, and God caring. May Jesus be the number one issue of your life today!
