Dad, Why Do We Always Talk About God at Church?

This was our conversation tonight as I gave Christopher his bath:

"Dad, why do we always talk about God at church?"

"Well, because everything is about God."

"Even you?"

"Even me."

"Even me?"

"Even you."

"Even my toys?"

"Even your toys."

"(Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross" (Colossians 1:15-20).

There is a great application in this post to the election.

Although myself and many other conservative Christians are disappointed that we have such a liberal president that wants no restrictions on abortions or who supports homosexual issues yet one that claims to be a Christian and goes to church regularly.

We have to remember that everything that happens is in his control including "thrones or powers or rulers or authorities"
