Unbeknownst to the vast majority of people in the world today, Christ is what life is all about. In Ephesians 1:10-23, the Apostle Paul teaches us that God the Father is summing up everything in this life in His Son, Jesus Christ. He is doing so, Paul explains, so that in the end He can place Christ over it all. It all adds up to Christ, who is what life is all about.

In biblical times, unlike today, when figures were added up, their sum was not placed on the bottom, but on the top. This is the picture of life being drawn by the divinely inspired pen of the Apostle Paul in the first chapter of Ephesians. He is showing us how everything in this universe is adding up to Christ and how Christ in the end will be placed over it all. Therefore, my friend, if you don’t have Christ, you have nothing, since Christ is the sum of everything!
