“That God may be all in all.” (1 Cor. 15.24-28)
“These last words are my text. What a mystery there is in the context! We are accustomed to speak of the two great acts of humiliation on the part of the Lord Jesus — His descending from the throne and becoming Man upon earth, a Servant among men; and of His descent, through the Cross, into the grave, the depth of humiliation under the curse. But oh! what a mystery there is here — that there is a time coming in the everlasting glory when the Son of Man shall be subjected unto the Father, and shall give the kingdom into the Father’s hands, and ‘God shall be all in all.’ I cannot understand this; it passes knowledge. But I worship Christ in the glory of His subjection to the Father.
“And here I learn one precious lesson, and that is what I want to point you to — that the whole aim of Christ’s coming, and the whole aim of redemption, and the whole aim of Christ’s work in our hearts is summed up in that one thought — ‘That God may be all in all.’”
