God Creates All Things – Gospel Reflection on John 1:3

Today’s Gospel

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. – John 1:3


Although only one sentence, this verse tells us a very important information: God is the One who created all things in the universe and the One who rules over all things. Not a single thing doesn’t live according to the laws established by God. Just as God’s words say, “God is the Master of the rules that control the universe, He controls the rules that govern the survival of all things, and He also controls the universe and all things such that they can live together; He makes it so they do not go extinct or disappear so that mankind may continue to exist, man can live in such an environment through God’s leadership. These rules that govern all things are under the dominion of God, however, mankind cannot intervene and cannot change them; only God Himself knows these rules and only He Himself manages them. When will the trees sprout, when will it rain, how much water and how many nutrients will the earth give the plants, in what season will the leaves fall, in what season will the trees bear fruit, how much energy will the sunlight give the trees, what will the trees exhale from the energy they get from the sunlight—these are all things that God had already arranged when He created the universe and they are laws that cannot be broken by man. The things created by God—whether they are living or appear to be non-living by people—are all in God’s hands and under His dominion. No man can change or break this rule.”

God controls the rules of all things for the sake of us mankind, and has prepared all these prior to the creation of Adam and Eve, our ancestors. Until now, all things still live in the rules and laws set down by God to serve us mankind. For example: The four seasons—spring, summer, fall, and winter—alternate on time; different species reproduce in different seasons; different geographical environments play each of their different roles.... All these contain God’s love for us. Let’s praise God every day!
