That is Mine

Who on earth has the right to point to anything in all of creation and say, ‘that is mine’? Which being can claim total ownership of anything? It can be none than the Creator Himself! All things belong to God!!

However, some may protest! Really there is nothing that I can say it is mine!! How about my kids, are they not mine? How about my car, I bought it with my money? Or how about my successful project, it was due to my brains and skill?

Good protest! But what new thing do you have or came up with that you did not already find in the world? The very life one has is from God (Genesis 2:7). If you are still protesting, go and make your own life with your own resources. For naked and totally with nothing you came into this world. Even your intellect, all your clever skills you have did not originated with you!

Here is the conclusion of the matter, even you, the entire you belongs to God!

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (John 1:3-4)

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (Colossians 1:16).

Abraham Kuyper sums it up all well when he said, “In the total expanse of human life there is not a single square inch of which the Christ, who alone is sovereign, does not declare, ‘That is mine'”.
