That in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him.

-Ephesians 1:10 (KJB2000)

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

There is probably no more vital truth for the Christian than to understand our current position in Christ and our future relationship to Him. Before time began, God determined to gather all things together in Christ; to unite everything together in Him; to sum-up and bring into one final whole, all things in Jesus Christ the Messiah of God.

Time was when there was no time and a time is coming when the fullness of time will have been reached, when time will be completed – that is the time when all that God planned and purposed will have reached its full objective and final consummation. That time spans from the foundation of the world and will terminate in the dispensation of the fullness of times so that God might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him. This is the time when the successive ages of man and the millennial rule of Christ, in which the gospel of God and the good news of Christ has reached the distant shores of humanity will be brought to its close – the time when everything will be gathered up together, in Christ, and given back to God.

This is the time when tears will break into joy and sadness into laughter. This is the time when toil will be replaced with rest, sickness with health, need with plenty and suffering will be overtaken by glory. This is the time when Israel will have been restored and the groaning creation will sing for joy.

My Prayer

Loving Father You plans and purpose in Christ demonstrate Your great and  gracious wisdom. Thank You that in Christ I am part of that plan when Christ is all in all – may my life be one that sings forth Your praises not only with my lips but in my life, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
