John 1:3 “Through him all things were made; without him, nothing was made that has been made.”
Through Him (Logos, the Word) – from Him, because of Him, out of Him, by means of, by reason of..all things were made; without Him nothing was made that had been made. – wow! Although John was speaking of Christ before the Christmas story the truths of these verses are as alive today as during creation. Not only did Christ create the vast solar systems, He also created the amazing DNA of our bodies.
Colossians 1:17 …He holds all creation together.
The Greek word for create is γέγονεν (gegonen) – has emerged, come into being. How mighty with all knowledge and wisdom all creation emerged through Him. But that is only the beginning! Christs’ power keeps all things working as designed. Col 1:17 (holds all things together), Hebrews 1:3 (sustains all things by his powerful word). By Christ’s power, the corn grows…and it stays corn. Gravity stays in place, elements react consistently, planets move in their axis, and computer chips with thousands of transistors on one chip operate because Christ holds the reactions of elements together.
Take a break and watch a video about microchips .
Man is only able to design and manufacture our modern life because Christ not only created the world but also maintains it.
Read God’s questions to Job about creation and sustaining all things. Job 38-41. If Christ were to pull His power away for one instant…all matter would dissolve. Allow your eyes to wander over nature both plants and animals. Also look at man’s advancement in medical care, communication, and space exploration. All because of Christ’s power.
