Romans 11:36

"For from him and through him and for him are all things.
   To him be the glory forever! Amen."

Everything was made by Christ, through Christ, and for Christ, including you.  You were made with Christ in mind.  You were made with a place already carved out into you for him to dwell.  You were made to contain the Almighty God!  You sit and wonder how can such an enormous God fit inside such a tiny person?  He doesn't, but rather he fills you until you overflow with his power, glory, and righteousness.  You were made to be just like Him, made in the image of Christ, to reflect his glory and to sing his praise.  And as Christians we claim to be "little Christs", laying hold of our true identities in Him.

All things belong to Christ and all that we have is grace from God and blessing from on high.  Our very lives are the breath of God which animates us.  All that we hunger for and all that we eat was made by Christ and given to us by his generosity.  He, being completely free and totally independent of anything outside himself, chose to create us and more so chose to be our God.  That is the ultimate grace and its very meaning.  You were made with God in mind.
