Colossians 1: 15-23

The Supremacy of the Son of God

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of[fn] your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. …In the exalted Christ the unknowable God becomes known.” (Peake) I started a job yesterday photographing newborns. Each of their little faces are so distinct and different. Each have a lifetime before them. I try to picture Jesus as a newborn and all the tiny little gestures that he would have been making and all the down time of the newborn life. Jesus was the only newborn whose lifetime before Him would have the impact that it did. His death had the same impact. 18… Read more »
