Colossians 1:15-20 Characteristics of Christ

Verses 15-20, is a poem which catalogs and celebrates the characteristics of Christ.

The gospel message, that we are rescued, transferred from death to life, moves on to a description of God’s beloved Son…2
15Who is the image of the invisible God,the firstborn of all creation;
16for in him all things were created,in heaven and on earth,things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers all things have been created through him and for him.
17He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
18 He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything.
19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,
20and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, by making peace through the blood of his cross [all things] whether on earth or in heaven.

Praise God as for the time of the church of Christ.  We are the first-born of faith, we became estranged and hostile to God, but through his first-born we are made whole.

    As time is short, I would like to amplify: it’s simple, God is light, His son is light, the Holy Spirit is light, and our soul is light. Think about, the things we watch on TV, and the movies are light.
    Love your enemies.
