All Things Are Of God
All things are of God and so it is very strange and remarkable that we mortal men try to exclude Him from our hearts and lives. We exclude Him from our thinking. We don*t spend our time and energy doing what He wants us to. We rebel against our Creator. We do not worship Him and serve Him as He deserves and as we ought. And yet He wants to forgive us for our neglect and disrespect of Him, reconcile us to Himself and help us to begin to give Him what He deserves.

Romans 1:28: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Psalms 53:1: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
Romans 3:11: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
2 Corinthians 5:18: And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
So, have you received Christ and become reconciled to God? Have you begun to give Him some of what He deserves?
