The Incomparable Christ

Colossians 1:13-14

“13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” (NASB)

Colossians begins as do most of the letters in the New Testament, with the normal hellos and how-are-yous. Without negating the importance of the opening statements, I personally can’t wait to get to the meat of the letter. That’s where we find ourselves today in verse 13. It’s the opening salvo to some of the most famous and highly regarded descriptions of Jesus in the whole book.

Verse 13 starts with “He rescued us”, but as we read down, the description of who He is jumps off the page…

He is the image of the invisible God

all things have been created through Him and for Him

He is also the head of the body, the church

Just typing those phrases made the hair stand up on my arm!

May God bless this time in His word today in and through your life.

Amen
