You program it to draw quads/polygons/shapes etc in 3d space. You ''ask'' it to put textures on those polygons, and draw a fog effect, or add a light at x,y,z etc.

OpenGL takes the information you give it to draw a scene on your screen.

That''s a terrible description, but it should be enough for you to figure it out.
