Jesus is Better Than Everything

At the center of all we are as Christians is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, as the head. Jesus Christ, as the image of the invisible God, as the object of our worship, and the subject of our affections. Jesus Christ who holds all things together, as the source of all life. Jesus Christ who is better than everything. He is the peace-making judge who has reconciled mankind unto himself—those who were once hostile in heart and mind against Him—by his death upon the cross.

This week we will continue our study in the letter to the Colossians. We will dig into the reality of the preeminence of Christ in everything, because Jesus Christ is better than everything. By God’s grace may we comprehend the love of Christ evermore, as the One in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Jesus is Better Than Everything

May God be praised in all we do, through the might of his glorious grace.

God Bless,

Pastor Brian

Colossians 1:15–23, “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. “”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. “”And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, “”he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, “”if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.

    Jesus IS better than everything. I am learning that more and more through my frequent battles between spirit and flesh. Just like the woman at the well that sought fulfillment in life through sin. I too find myself returning to my ” vomit”. This disgusts me when I fall into my fleshly desires because I have been giving understanding of the ” Living Water” and “Bread of Life”. Jesus! He is the only thing that will bring fulfillment. In Jesus we will never thirst for anything. I am convicted that it is through the power of His word that we are sanctified and sustained. I take comfort in the fact that my old sinful ways are not satisfying anymore. Only Christ. I pray that He continues to give me a hunger for Him and His word as well as my brothers in sisters in Christ. God bless.
