Out of Control?

Yesterday we discussed Colossians 1:17-20.  Perhaps the key pount was that Jesus holds everything in life together.

“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 ‭1:17-20‬ ‭

That has me thinking about my own life. Occasionally my life seems out of control, so a good question for me, and each of us, is:

“WHERE AM I NOT ALLOWING JESUS FULL ACCESS TO MY LIFE THAT IT IS OUT OF CONTROL IN THE FIRST PLACE?”

EVERYTHING is moving toward Jesus

This past Sunday we discussed that EVERYTHING is moving toward Jesus... (based on Co 1:15-16)

“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.”  Colossians‬ ‭1:15-16

What are both positive and negative implications of this in the life a person who is following Jesus?

What it means: Jesus is the Image of God

This Sunday morning we will unpack what it means that Jesus is the Image of the Invisible God.

In the end, it is't about the head knowledge we will gain, it is about what difference this profound theological concept is going to make in our lives.

Despite the reality that the world combines its own ideas into their concept of God, this truth that Jesus actually is God has very clear implications to it...

Can you name one or two of these implications?
