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. —Colossians 1:15-20
Did you catch all the repetition about who Jesus is and what he has done and is doing? by Him…through Him…for Him…in Him…
How often do we strive and seek to accomplish and do in our own strength? How often do we seek to find our identity and worth in created things instead of resting in who we are in Christ Jesus and all that He has done for us?
Look to Jesus today! Remember regardless of your striving or struggling, you can rest in the fact that Jesus is above all things, over all things, and holding all things together.
All things for His glory!
