The vastness of God’s authority and power cannot be overstated. In today’s western world of academic acrimony toward religion and all things spiritual, their is the tendency to be dismissive toward this idea. Thusly Christians in the west are often obsessed with grand ideas about the cosmos and the furthest vastness of space and time. In many of the intellectual properties surrounding these stories, there is an idea about the vast nothingness of the universe, even across the multiverse of choices and outcomes. But Paul taught something different but equally as vast, and Christians ought to take heed and let it inform their idea of truth. God shows us through Jesus that he cannot be escaped, that his power is ultimate across space and time. He shows us that his intentions for us and his power to accomplish them is a simple undeniable fact of everything, everywhere, all at once. This means his love for us and the hope we should have in him is conclusive. Believers should hold onto this.
