Some Challenges from Colossians! (Part 6)

We are working our way through this incredible epistle of Colossians. As we think about the first chapter, we have seen Paul’s example in praying meaty, substantive prayers for these believers.

Let’s move on to another theme in chapter one — the Person of the Lord Jesus.  We read,

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
