Christ, the Supreme and Sustaining One by Ernie Hood

Imagine standing at the edge of a vast, breathtaking canyon. The sun is just beginning to rise, casting a warm and golden glow across the rocky terrain. As you take in the majestic beauty before you, you can’t help but feel a sense of awe and insignificance in the presence of such grandeur.

Now, consider this: If this awe-inspiring landscape is a glimpse of the beauty of creation, how much more magnificent must the Creator Himself be? Our passage this coming Sunday morning, Colossians 1:15-18, invites us to explore the grandeur of Christ’s supremacy, painting a vivid portrait of who He is and what His role is in our lives.

Just as a sunrise illuminates a canyon, revealing its intricate details, so does Colossians 1:15-18 shed light on the nature of Christ. In these verses, we find a tapestry of descriptions that unveil Christ as the image of the invisible God, the Creator of all things, and the head of the church.

As we plan to embark on this journey through Colossians 1:15-18, let’s consider the beauty and significance of each brushstroke in this divine portrait. Let’s allow these verses to challenge our perceptions, transform our understanding of God, and inspire us to live in light of Christ’s preeminence.

Just as the canyon’s beauty calls us to marvel at the Creator, so does Christ’s supremacy call us to wonder at the depth of His character and purpose. Take some time before Sunday to delve into this passage, and let’s be ready to discover the treasures it holds and be eager to be transformed by the revelation of the One who stands at the center of it all.

See you Sunday!
