the nature of uniting all things.
for the longest time I was puzzled by this passage because it sounded as if God planned to unite all things in himself in a pantheistic-like way. But since Paul keeps emphasizing our inheritance as believers I think God's plan to unite all things is more in a familial and royal send. The way God will be all in all is through the power of his Spirit reigning in his people as he mysteriously planned from the beginning. There will be perfect delegated authority where we will truly rule, and how we rule will be exactly as God the Father wills and so all things will be united in him and under his authoritative care.
