All of God

God is the beginning, the middle, and the end of all things.  Nothing exists without his creating it.  Nothing stays in being without his sustaining word.  Everything has its reason for existing from him.  Therefore nothing can be understood apart from him, and all understandings of all things that leave him out are superficial understandings, since they leave out the most important reality in the universe.  We can scarcely begin to feel today how God-ignoring we have become, because it is the very air we breathe.
– John Piper
in A God Entranced Vision of All Things
