“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: ‘Mine!'” – Abraham Kuyper
This is one of my favorite non-scriptural quotes! I love Kuyper’s emphasis not only on God’s sovereignty, but also His focus on Christ’s cosmic possession of everything near us and around us. Perhaps when I apply this to the cosmic domain, I am stretching Kuyper’s statement. However, having read Kuyper, I rest assured knowing he would agree!!! Christ is not only in control of all, He possesses all!
Remember, things are heading to the consummation of the universe – where Christ will possess all and His kingdom shall be seen!!
