Jonathan Edwards on Romans 11:36
“For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.” - Romans 11:36
Jonathan Edwards in “God Glorified in Man’s Dependence”:
“The several ways wherein the dependence of one being may be upon another for its good, and wherein the redeemed of Jesus Christ depend on God for all their good, and these viz. That they have all their good of Him, and that they have all through Him and that they have all in Him.
That He is the cause and original whence all their good comes, therein it is of Him;
and that He is the medium by which it is obtained and conveyed, therein they have it through Him;
And that He is the good itself given and conveyed, therein it is in Him.”
