15 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, 16 for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. 17 He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. 18 Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. 19 For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, 20 and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
Read a bit more about the scripture you just read.
Jesus was there at the creation of the world and He will be there at it’s end. That is why we refer to Him as the Alpha and the Omega. All of life has been created through Jesus – things you see and understand – and things that you do not see. Your life, all of life is supported and sustained by His great power and love. The bid AHA is this; that Jesus is the Head of the Church. Not the priest, pastor, or prophet – Jesus! We, and all of life can have peace with the Divine through living, resting and trusting in Jesus. And that includes you!
