Romans 11:36, For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
How can we boast in ourselves when all things come from God and all things are sustained by Him? We replace God with sacred autonomy—we sever ourselves so much from God that we become inane enough to convince ourselves we have the authority to kill infants in the womb, to pretend we are some other sex—to live our lives however we want. This is not freedom; it is lawlessness, running around in the Devil’s excrement. All things come from God, and He sustains all things. Therefore, let us work tireless to bring glory to God. Not as if we somehow earn salvation, but so our life of witness may testify to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, that glory to God may be found on our lips, and that our proclamation brings others into this witnessing glory of God.
