God Is The Owner Of All

Some people basically shake their fists and say,' Why should I listen and follow God? Even many Christians have forgotten a very important and basic principle about God. It is that He is the owner of all.

If you have any belief or faith that there is a creator God, then due to Him, all, everthing came into existence and therefore all belongs to Him. He planned and designed this planet, this galaxy, this universe and His abode in heaven as well. This actually means you don't really own anything. He designed and made all protons, neutrons and electrons (and all smaller particles), He has the patent on all. Besides the rocks, water, air, 'your' car, house and furniture, He also owns every atom that makes up 'your' body, including the bodies of 'your' partner and children.

This has a great implication, that 'your' life is not your own and never was! Everything you have is not 'yours' and has been given to you and can also be taken away at any time. This does really mean everything, including family. God as designer, creator and sovereign King of all, has this right.

This is the reason why we should listen and follow God, why we say grace before meals, why we should always be thankful to God for everything. God's ownership of everything has much to do with how all of us should behave and act in life, towards others and possessions. This applies even more so to Christians who have believed in Jesus, especially as 1 Corinthians 6:20 states, 'you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body'. Even before you became a Christian, God owned your body. People with their bodies and possessions should always glorify God, the creator and true owner of all.
