Suspended in You presents the big picture of God and Jesus being the center of the universe and our coming into God as
being a streching experience rather than a confining moment.
The hugeness of God is shown so many times in the Bible,
but a couple of great scriptures are Isaiah 6:3 ("the whole earth is full of his glory") and the whole beginning of Psalm
104, which talks of his stretching out the heavens like a tent and holding up the entire world in his majesty. Definitely
read these fully.
The part we sometimes forget is that we are given fullness of life in Jesus when we are born again
in him (John 10:10). That is no small thing. We become one with the one who created the universe, who holds it all together!
Check out this incredible portion of scripture as interpreted in The Message:
"We look at this Son and we see the
God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God's original purpose in everything created. For everything, above and
below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels- everything got started in him and finds its purpose in
him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes
to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body. He was supreme in the beginning and-leading the
resurrection parade-he is supreme in the end. From beginning to end he's there, towering far above everything, everyone. So
spacious is he, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding. Not only that, but all the
broken and dislocated pieces of the universe-people and things, animals and atoms-get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant
harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the cross."
That says it all-we are suspended
in Jesus, stretched to fit in our place in his kingdom, or government, of the universe, not pushed into a corner where we
