Christ Our Sustainer

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

The opening chapter of Colossians reveals powerful truths and foundational precepts to the Believer. I pray that these truths will encourage and strengthen each of you as you read and study this week.

Paul tells us that Christ is the eternal God who created all things. Everything that was created was brought into existence by the power and might of the Son of God. The truth uttered in Genesis 1-2 is thundered by the apostle Paul in this Scripture. Jesus is the maker of all that is.

Jesus is also the head of all things and by Him all things hold together. Christ not only creates, He sustains, guards, and provides for His creation. Without Jesus, the universe would quickly unravel and fall into ruin.

The Apostle teaches us that Christ is the head of the Church. The Church belongs to Jesus. (Matthew 16:18) It is His building (1 Corinthians 3:9), His body (1 Corinthians 10:17), and His bride (Revelation 21:9). He is the Head and we are to follow Him every step of the way.

These principles revealed in Colossians 1 are edifying to the Christian. They make a difference in our lives as we read them and apply them. Thank you for reading and studying the Bible, child of God. You will never regret spending time in God’s Word!
