Christ As Creator, Sustainer, Goal, and Reconciler

If you worship Christ as the Creator of everything, every cosmic speck across billions of light years of trackless space, the Creator of the textures and shapes and colors that dazzle our eyes; if you worship Christ as the Sustainer of all creation, who by his word holds the atoms of your body and this universe together; if you worship him as the Goal of everything, that all creation is for him; if you further worship Christ as the Reconciler of your soul - then you worship the God of the Bible. Anything less than this is reductionist and idolatrous.

- R. Kent Hughes, in Worship by the Book (D.A. Carson, ed.)
