Day 11: Christ is Supreme

In Colossians1, Paul quotes one of the earliest Christian hymns to remind us just who we find in the manger at Christmas:

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.
He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.
Christ is also the head of the church,
which is his body.
He is the beginning,
supreme over all who rise from the dead.
So he is first in everything.
For God in all his fullness
was pleased to live in Christ,
and through him God reconciled
everything to himself.
He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth
by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

(Colossians 1:15-20 NLT)

    Today’s talk was great! You explained propitiation really well. Also, didn’t know about snowflakes! Only Jeff Gardner can tie in snowflakes to a talk about sin and Jesus’ blood covering our dirt like ice crystals and water. Good stuff. I’ll always think differently about snowflakes and remember God’s most precious gift to me!
