Paradigm shifts. They happen. One of the most important paradigm shifts that needs to happen is for us to go from thinking that the world revolves around us to thinking that the world revolves around the Son of God, Jesus.
In our study of the doctrine of the love of God, we looked at John 17 last Sunday. In this prayer of the Lord Jesus, we see emphasized His relationship to His Father and the Father's love for His Son.
So why is there something and not 'nothing'? One way to answer that question is to do so in light of John 17.
There is something and not 'nothing' because of the Father's love for His Son. God has done everything in creation and redemption for His Son and the glory of His name in the glory of His Son!
