"...a wheel within a wheel..."
Christ is the First cause, the Primum movens, the Source who set everything in motion: from hailing the first heartbeat to triggering the first tick of time.
And it is He who authors and animates our lives. He moves, we move. A divine domino effect. We are either vitally connected to our Creator or we are void of Life entirely.
Thankfully, the God Who holds our breath in His hand and owns all our ways is not some distant Dictator, doling out commands and leaving us to our own devices. Jesus said, "Behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.". He longs to live and move and have His being in us so that His Person is worked out through us, incarnated into this earth, perpetuated through His posterity.
"For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure". We were fitted and formed, not to work independently of Him, but to function interdependently with Him...
this sublime symphony,
this intricate intimacy,
this beautiful oneness,
our life an extension of His quickening life within.
"In Him we live and move and have our being."
(Acts 17:28, Daniel 5:23, Phillipians 2:13, Romans 8:11, John 14:19)
