Unbeknownst to the vast majority of people in the world today, Christ isÂ what life is all about. In Ephesians 1:10-23, the Apostle Paul teaches usÂ that God the Father is summing up everything in this life in His Son, JesusÂ Christ. He is doing so, Paul explains, so that in the end He can place ChristÂ 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 wasÂ not placed on the bottom, but on the top. This is the picture of life beingÂ drawn by the divinely inspired pen of the Apostle Paul in the first chapter ofÂ Ephesians. He is showing us how everything in this universe is adding upÂ to Christ and how Christ in the end will be placed over it all. Therefore, my friend, if you donâ€™t have Christ, you have nothing, since Christ is the sum ofÂ everything!
