Monday 15th April // CHRIST

Colossians 1:15-20 We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. He was supreme in the beginning and —leading the resurrection parade—he is supreme in the end. From beginning to end he’s there, towering far above everything, everyone. So spacious is he, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding. Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe—people and things, animals and atoms—get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the cross.

 

 As we begin Holy Week and prepare our hearts and minds for Easter take some time today to read through this passage maybe a few times and allow the vastness and largeness of Jesus to impact you afresh.

I pray that this beautiful passage would sink deep into you today and that these truths would speak to you as you spend time in worship. May you find your place within the vibrant harmonies of God today.
