God is greater than the universe itself


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times Nothing is bigger than God, not even the universe, the largest, oldest and most powerful of His creations. When you understand that, you understand that nothing about humans, not our problems or pleasures, not our failures or successes, are greater than God. We, like the rest of the universe, are created beings and we, no matter what we pretend otherwise, are as dependant on our creator as the rest of creation. So when we experience success, happiness and joy in life, we should never forget to give thanks to the one who created us and therefore enables us to enjoy the best things of the life He gave us. We should also never forget that when we have problems, failures, and burdens that seem unbearable, that God is there to help us through those times if we will only turn to Him and accept His guidance, direction and blessing. Most of all, we should remember that, unlike the rest of the universe, we are made in the image of God and therefore while our physical existence will one day come to an end like the universe itself, we have a spirit that will survive our physical death for all eternity. That eternity can be one of infinite joy or infinite sorrow depending on whether we choose to trust and serve God in this life or reject Him. Which will you choose?
