Colossians 1:15-20 -
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 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 and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 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.
It's moist outside - been raining since yesterday, a little chillier than "normal", and overall kinda messy as we get ready for midweek school and work. Overcast outside usually leads to contemplation inside for me. And this morning, Paul's words speak volumes to me about Jesus' high place and high intentions in creation. As Creator and Sustainer, all things exist because of Him. And in the midst of that, He seeks to reconcile by making peace through His shed blood. While it's inspiring to think of Christ's majesty and supremacy above all things, it's so incredibly encouraging to be drawn to Him in reconciliation, His blood preparing the way in peace.
