273 Where Does Life Come From
1. God uses His life to supply all things both living and lifeless, bringing all to good order by virtue of His power and authority. This is a truth which none can conceive or easily comprehend, and these incomprehensible truths are the very manifestation of and testament to the life force of God. The greatness and power of the life of God cannot be fathomed by any creature. It is thus now, was thus then, and will be thus in time to come.
2. The source of life comes from God, for all creation, whatever the difference in form or structure. You cannot move counter to the path of life that God has set. All God wishes is for man to understand that without the care, keeping, and provision of God, man cannot receive all that he was meant to receive, no matter how great the effort or struggle. Without the supply of life from God, man loses the sense of value in living; without the supply of life from God, man loses the sense of purpose in life.
