Jesus Christ is Truly the Glorious Lord

Jesus Christ is glorious to an infinite degree. He is everything to us. He is the one and only. He is all. Paul makes this clear in many passages, but what the apostle writes in Colossians 1 may sum this up more clearly than anywhere else. The following verses stir my soul every time I read them.

Colossians 1:15-20 says:

"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross."

Praise the Lord for being who he is! Praise him for who he is for us! Praise him for what he has done for us!
