Bible Passage: Colossians 1:15-23
It’s by you or anything else that you will get to Heaven. It’s only by Him, Jesus Christ. You will either go His way or you won’t go at all. Who is He?
He is the image of the invisible God. Jesus didn’t just exist when He was first born unto Mary & Joseph. Jesus was with God in the beginning. Jesus is the reflection of God. When we look at a pool of water we might see the reflection of the moon. It proves that there is a real object.
He is the first born of every creature. Everything that is a part of us and everything that we know was started with Jesus. It is by Jesus Christ that we have ALL things. Christ is the creator of the creature. All of these things we know that there had to be a creator. All of these things we see we can’t deny that there was a designer. If Jesus Christ is the creator of all things and He created you, then who do you belong to? We are all accountable to our creator and must yield to Him.
In the beginning there was nothing and He created something from nothing. When He created it He called everything good. It wasn’t until humans sinned that it became bad.
Not only did He create it but He continues it. So far, everyday the sun rises and the sun sets. At any given point during the day or night we never think about making our hearts to beat, and yet it continues to beat. Grass as simple as it is, He makes it grow. No one planted the grass on the high mountains. No one is watering it or fertilizing it and yet it grows.
The church is kept going by Him. He is the head of the body. We are NOT the head, we are the body. No Christ in the church, no power in the church. Christ made the church and put the body together.
He has reconciled all things for Himself. Jesus loves us. We are just a part of His creation and yet He chose humans to give a living soul to. Everything that He created fist came from Him. Trees. In order to have a tree one must have a seed. In order to have a seed one must have a tree. Either way, who made the tree or seed? It wasn’t by accident that these things came to be.
The gospel is very simple. Believe in Christ and you shall be saved. If you’ve found any other way, you’re lost and going to Hell. The Bible is simple, if it’s wrong, it’s wrong; if it’s right, it’s right. It hasn’t changed nor will it change.
