Colossians 1:15-21

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, 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. He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together. 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. For God in all his fullness
was pleased to live in Christ, 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. This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. (Colossians 1:15-21 NLT)

    It is amazing that the Creator of the Universe, creator of billions of humans and other creatures, the wonders of the universe, the wonders of our planet….It’s a wonder that HE called us by name to be His own….
    And the promises He has made to us of eternal life, sonship, priesthood, blessings unknown and untold….
    We should all be shouting Ray!!
    We should be shouting to our fellow creatures about the Creators desire for their lives. We should be shouting at each other to cease from sin, cease from worldly pursuits that occupy all our spare time and focus on His mission….
    Leading Godly lives before a lost world, ready and willing to snatch others out of the fire.
    Bless your day and stay strong. I pray for y’all.
