All Things are Yours
For all things are yours; whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours. And ye are Christ’s and Christ is God’s.
I Corinthians 3:21-23
Then take him for everything, salvation, strength, guidance, every need of the whole man. “Having nothing, and yet possessing all things” (II Cor. 6:10) – blessed paradox! I bring Him my nothingness and take His Allness. “Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to Thy cross I cling.” From nothing to everything!
And there is power to do. “I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me” (Phil. 4:13). For God is able to make all grace abound toward me, that I always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work (II Cor. 9:8).
I am not just to enjoy all this for myself. All things are mine except myself. I am not my own, I am bought with a price; therefore I ought to glorify God in my body and in my spirit, which are God’s (I Cor. 6:19, 20).
Move out of Nothing into Everything! It is all in Christ and it is all for you. And you are then not a depository but a dispenser. “Freely ye have received, freely give.”
