Jesus Christ!

Today's reading: Colossians 1:15-23 (NLT)

Right in the middle of Colossians 1, Paul provides incredible detail about Jesus, from before man was created until eternity. Because Jesus came to earth, took on human form, and lived among us, sometimes we can overlook the fact that while Jesus was a man, he also was, is, and continues to be fully and actively God. I particularly like the verse 15 of the New Living Translation version of this informative passage because of how simply it reminds us of who Christ is. It also reminds us of the gift of Jesus coming to us in observable form so that we can have an even better understanding of God's love and how to live for Him.

"Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation" (vs. 15).

What stood out to you most about Jesus from these verses, and why? What encouragement did you draw from this passage? Tami

Tami,you chose a good verse, Jesus is supreme over all although Jesus became a visible image of God. He still was God in the flesh!!

I was drawn to verses 20-22 "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.

21 This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. 22 Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault."

Before I accepted the Lord I was an enemy to Jesus Who was/is God. To think that Jesus died so that I could have peace with Him and to be blameless! This overwhelms and encourages me to live and obey Him and I might add spend more time in talking to Jesus and reading His Word.
