One God, One Christ

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.  (1 Corinthians 8:6) 

Once again scripture declares the sovereignty of God.  How many gods does man declare?  The Bible says that there is but one God, the Father of all.  Some might even declare that there is only one supreme God but many other smaller gods.  No!  No!  No!  That is not what the Bible says.  The Bible says ONE God.  I do agree that men can make a god out of anything they worship.  But there is only ONE true and living God.  He created all.  He is all.  All things are by Him.  Likewise there is but one Christ.  This is an important theological issue addressed in this passage.  Simply that Jesus Christ and God are one and the same.  That Jesus Christ is God.  For the inspired writing of Paul says that there is one God of whom are all things.  Then he says that there is one Lord Jesus Christ by whom are all things.  All things are by and of Jesus Christ.  All things are by and of God.  Jesus Christ and God are one.  Jesus is the source of all things including you and I.  He is the source of our creation and He is the source of our salvation.  What a glorious thought for such a time as this.
