06/15 Colossians 1:19-20
For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, 20 and by him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of his blood on the cross.
The Lord Jesus Christ has reconciled us to the Father. He forgives us, gives us His righteousness and brings us into the Family of God. Rejoice Jesus is indeed Lord.
06/14 Colossians 1:18
Christ is the head of the church, which is his body. He is the first of all who will rise from the dead, so he is first in everything.
First, first, first in all things, and in everything and He is head of the church. When you are fearful remember that we serve a Risen Savior whose every thought towards you is a thought for good.
06/13 Colossians 1:17
He existed before everything else began, and he holds all creation together.
Saved and sinner alike cannot exist without Jesus. He holds all creation together. He is the Alpha and Omega. One day we will be with Him for eternity.
06/12 Colossians 1:16
Christ is the one through whom God created everything in heaven and earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see — kings, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities. Everything has been created through him and for him.
JESUS is God’s everything. He is all and in all and yet he is very God, creator of all things, always was and is. He is certainly Lord of all things.
06/11 Colossians 1:15
Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before God made anything at all and is supreme over all creation.
Jesus is the Living Lord. He is just like God. He was the creative impetus of God and He is very much God. Focus on Jesus. He is all you need.
06/10 Colossians 1:14
God has purchased our freedom with his blood and has forgiven all our sins.
The blood of Jesus was shed for you. His blood cleanses you from all unrighteousness and provides forgiveness for your sin. Jesus did for us what we cannot do for ourselves. He is Lord.
06/09 Colossians 1:13
For he has rescued us from the one who rules in the kingdom of darkness, and he has brought us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.
We formerly lived in darkness, dead in our trespasses and sin. Jesus saved us and now we live in the light. We will never live in the darkness again for Jesus is the LIGHT and life and we live in Him.
06/08 Colossians 1:11-12
We also pray that you will be strengthened with his glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need. May you be filled with joy, 12 always thanking the Father, who has enabled you to share the inheritance that belongs to God’s holy people, who live in the light.
People are looking for joy. They think it will be in money or success or status-always related to a thing or an event. Joy is something we have inside when we come into the Family of God. We have real joy in Jesus Christ.
06/07 Colossians 1:10
Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, you will learn to know God better and better.
When we receive wisdom from the Lord we become wise in spiritual things. As we serve the Lord those spiritual things translate into our being wise in the way we live. A wise person fears God, loves Jesus and loves people.
06/06 Colossians 1:9
So we have continued praying for you ever since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you a complete understanding of what he wants to do in your lives, and we ask him to make you wise with spiritual wisdom.
Read the Word of God, meditate on it, apply it to your life and you will be wise. Listen to the Lord and you will grow in wisdom.
