Today’s reading: Colossians 1:15-23 (NLT)
Right in the middle of Colossians 1, Paul provides incredible detail about Jesus, from before man was created until eternity. Because Jesus came to earth, took on human form, and lived among us, sometimes we can overlook the fact that while Jesus was a man, he also was, is, and continues to be fully and actively God. I particularly like the verse 15 of the New Living Translation version of this informative passage because of how simply it reminds us of who Christ is. It also reminds us of the gift of Jesus coming to us in observable form so that we can have an even better understanding of God’s love and how to live for Him.
“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation” (vs. 15).
What stood out to you most about Jesus from these verses, and why? What encouragement did you draw from this passage? Tami
