“Jesus Christ defines reality in the beginning and gives it form every second.”
I read these words from John Piper this morning. He is “sustaining all things by his powerful word” (Hebrews 1:3). “…in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17). Jesus defined reality in the beginning. He continues to sustain and hold reality together today.
Cause when I’m weak, You make me strong
When I’m blind, You shine Your light on me
Cause I’ll never get by living on my own ability
How refreshing to know You don’t need me
How amazing to find that you want me
So I’ll stand on Your truth, and I’ll fight with Your strength
Until You bring the victory, by the power of Christ in me
(In Me, by Casting Crowns)
Actually, I misheard a line in the middle to be Cause I’ll never get by living in my own reality. Not a bad misunderstanding.
