Partnering with the Alpha & Omega
|Bible / teachings / about Him|
I never thought much about this truth before, it sounded trite to me. Perhaps because no one would explain it. It is not about you, nor can it be about you, we all come short in so many ways, Romans 3:23. rather it is all about the Father and the Son Jesus Christ.
Would you even want it to be all about you? You might be a reasonably good person, your good qualities might out-weigh your bad, but the bad still exist. And if it is all about you, it is about your good attributes as well as your bad. All our righteousness is as filthy rags, Isaiah 64:6..
Jesus came and died, bringing us back into right fellowship with the Father. God has highly exalted Him, and has given Him a name which is above every name, Philippians 2:9.
I am the vine, you are the branches: He that abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without Me, you can do nothing, John 15:5. Another way of looking at this is, is to say the only part that is about us, is the part of us that is in Christ Jesus. If our wish is for it to be about us, we remain in our pride, having worldly values and outside of Christ.
