We are sticking to the plan! As we learned this past Sunday, our heavenly father has sprung a trap for the enemy. This is why, as brothers Paul Rosales and Adam Corra stated, we glory in our weaknesses. Through crying out for transformation as a result of these weaknesses, we see God's supernatural deliverance at work in our lives. This is the plan that King David stuck to as he dealt with Goliath. He refused to add any protection not given to him by his father, instead, he boasted in God's ability to deliver him and his father's sheep.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.—Just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.—Neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. And as for all who walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them. “By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.”—“I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.” John 15:8 (Listen) 8 By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.

Seek God Together
He is Reconciling Everything - Colossians 1:20

Seek God Together

If you appreciate this work, consider supporting it - https://www.patreon.com/seekgodtogether https://www.seekGodtogether.com Today we will read the final verse in the Jesus-song of Colossians 1. This is verse 20 and it says, “…and through Him to reconcile everything to Himself by making peace through the blood of His cross - whether things on earth or things in heaven.” We have to be willing to allow scripture to say what it says. If this is indeed the revelation of God to man, then no scripture is taboo. No scripture is dangerous - all of it is revealing the truth of God to us. If we allow other passages to simply say what they say, then we must be willing to allow this verse to say what it says. What is it saying? In Jesus, God is reconciling not some things, not most things, but everything to Himself. Again words fail - but to reconcile is to restore to friendly relations. What is God restoring back to friendly relations? Everything. Everyone. Every being. How is He doing this? Through the cross of Christ. Somehow, on the cross, God made peace with everything. And not just with us. Not just the sin of humanity. Apparently there were things to reconcile on earth - and also in heaven! I have to ask, how is it possible that there are things in heaven, around God's throne that need restoring to friendly relations? I don't know. I don't need to know - but this verse says it. If we go way back to Job, we see the accuser standing before God, accusing God, accusing Job. How could such a spirit bear the glory of God without being consumed? Perhaps in God's forbearance looking forward to the cross - a mystery to the rest of creation but always at the front of God's mind. What is God's end game? Is this verse telling us that in the end, everyone and everything will be saved? Would it bother you if that were the case? It sure reads that way. Will the worst sinner be saved? Will Hitler and Stalin? Will Satan himself? Will hell burn indefinitely? I don't know. But I do see what this verse says - God has made peace and is restoring friendly relations with everything.” He will be God of all - and there will be nothing that isn't at peace with Him. If this is God's end game then it is a glorious one. As surely as Jesus created all things, as surely as He holds all things together, and as surely as He has all of God's fullness, so is He surely reconciling everything to Himself. This is what scripture says. Jesus, I have many question…but I also want to be obedient to what You say here. Go for it - reconcile it all. I'll praise You as You do what You do.

He is God's Fulness - Colossians 1-19

If you appreciate this work, consider supporting it - https://www.patreon.com/seekgodtogether https://www.seekGodtogether.com Today we will continue looking at Colossians 1. Verse 19 says, “For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him…” We've been looking at the great and soaring song of Jesus in Colossians 1:15-20. Here we have the extent to which Jesus embodies the fullness of God. It's not most of God's fullness. It's not even almost all of God's fullness. Jesus possesses ALL of God's fullness. There is none of God's fullness that Jesus does not possess. Verse 19 continues a pattern with words like “All,” and “Every,” and “Everything.” Jesus created everything in the same way He holds everything together. There is nothing before Him and so He is before All things. He has first place in everything and in the same way has All of God's fulness. There is nothing Jesus lacks as God. He's not just shy of God's fullness, He's not almost there. He has it all - all the fullness. Of course our minds can't handle the fullness. We're dealing with things vastly beyond us. We ask questions like, “Are the Father and Jesus different? Are they two Gods? How did Jesus always exist? How can the Father be fully God and Jesus be fully God without them being the same? How does the trinity work?” There are theological words that have been developed to help us avoid a misstep. “Tri-theism” is the idea that there are three Gods as opposed to one. This is obviously a problem. Modalism is the idea that God just wears different hats. Sometimes He's the Father, other times the Son, and now the Holy Spirit. But they're all basically the same. Modes. So what's true? We use words to help understand concepts. But if the concept itself is beyond us, then our words are by definition too small in themselves. So any words we use will fall short. But what else do we have? We must press on in the mystery and try. I prefer to think of it this way…there is God. God is invisible, immaterial, powerful and mindful beyond comprehension. This God is unknowable unless “He” creates and reveals Himself. So He did. He revealed Himself as the Great Spirit powerfully creating all things - the Father. But the Father is still distant, Holy, and unapproachable. What can God do about that? He would come intimately close - as a human. All of God in a human - Jesus. All the fullness. And in this way He is revealing more of Himself - what He's like. Where words fail, the very Presence of God is with us. But Jesus is still another human. Close as we can get to a person, they never see our thoughts. They never interact on a spirit level. So Jesus sends God into our spirits - the Holy Spirit. Any closer, and we'd be with God in His fullness - and indeed that is our destiny. But for now, we write and sing soaring songs about Jesus possessing the fullness of God. Take it all in - breath Him in. God is better than You think - closer and more wonderful. Enjoy Him today. Jesus, I can't get enough of You - more - please more. You are what I need.

If you appreciate this work, consider supporting it - https://www.patreon.com/seekgodtogether https://www.seekGodtogether.com Today we will read Colossians 1:18 which says, “He is also the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He might come to have first place in everything.” We've been looking at the soaring song of Jesus in Colossians 1. If all the scholars and all the songwriters throughout the ages put their collective heads and hearts together, they could never exhaust the source material of Jesus Himself. There is never a risk to overshooting Jesus' glory. There is no such thing in getting “out-over-your-skis” in praising Jesus. Each of us whether individually or collectively are barely scratching the surface. So rather than believing the lie that your praise doesn't matter, instead jump in the ocean and behold the King of Kings. And add your words to the mighty chorus that is resounding throughout the cosmos about Jesus. “He is the head of the body, the church.” He's the figure-head, He's the authority, He's the star of the show. And perhaps just put a pin in the fact that the church is the body and the body is the church. That will come in handy in other passages. For now, accept that we are mysteriously part of Christ's own body. “He is the beginning - the firstborn from the dead.” It is interesting to note that if the resurrection of Jesus is true (and here we believe it is), then anything that has previously died, is still dead. Anything since that has died is still dead. There is only one person, one being, one anything, one-of-a-kind, indeed One God, Who has died and then come back to life. There is no keeping God dead. And it is important because if He has not been raised, then neither will you or anyone else. If God is to resurrect anything or anyone, then He must start somewhere. Why not start with Himself? Why not start with the God-man? Indeed He has. And why is He the firstborn from the dead? Why is He the head? Paul tells us: so that He might come to have first place in everything. Not some things. Not most things. All things. God (and Jesus by extension) is intensely focused on being in first place in all things. He doesn't apologize for it. He isn't embarrassed by it. And it's not arrogant in the least. Why? Because He knows Himself to be wondrous, glorious, and beautiful. For Him to not have first place would be a massive disservice to all things - in fact it would be death. It is a gift to all things to have as their source, and their head, Jesus the King of the Universe. And any reconciled being knows this to be true. The more holy we become the more in love we will be with our head - the Firstborn. We too will fall ever deeper in love. He will relish in it and pour Himself out more freely as the ages press on. And we will recognize and glory more and more in the enterprise. So write the songs - sing the praise. It's what you were meant for. Jesus, You are first! Have first place in my life. Move out anything that is resistant to You being first place in all things.

If you appreciate this work, consider supporting it - https://www.patreon.com/seekgodtogether https://www.seekGodtogether.com Today we will read Colossians 1:17. This profound verse says, “He is before all things, and by Him all things hold together.” If ever there was a verse to nerd out on scientifically, it's this one. And I'm willing to go out on a limb and say that Paul could hardly understand what He was writing - yay for revelation. We may have more scientific know-how than he did, but in 10,000 years our knowledge by comparison will look elementary. But if there's a God, and if Jesus is His image, then all science will do is further demonstrate His wisdom and power bit by bit. And His revelation to us will further reveal His goodness and beauty, from glory to glory. But until then, let's nerd out to the extent we can shall we? He is before all things… Energy exists in a timeless state. In order for there to be time at all, energy must be cool enough to “freeze” into matter. Matter allows for time. God, and Jesus by extension, existed before time began spinning. Whether the energy of the initial singularity was borrowed essence of God, or if that energy is separate from God is a mystery only He knows. We've read that Jesus is the firstborn, or preeminent One of creation. Does that mean the energy of the universe is itself of Jesus? Perhaps of Jesus and not of the Father? Do I even have a clue what I'm asking? Probably not. But it's sure wonderful to imagine. Whatever the case - He is before it all. And all things hold together in Him. All things. Things you see and don't see. It turns out, the things you see are almost entirely nothing. What we call solid, is a collection of atoms. These atoms have a tiny nucleus made up of particles made up of quarks. The solidity of an atom is largely electric bonds in the nucleus. The nucleus is surrounded by a swarm of flying electrons moving in quantized packets at the speed of light. The space between the nucleus and the electrons is vast in comparison. If the nucleus were a basketball, the electrons would be 30 miles away. Believe it or not, you could have a block of lead the size of the solar system, and shoot a neutrino through it and it will hit nothing. What you consider solid is almost entirely nothing. And given that everything is moving in quantized bits, you could say that the entire universe is digital. To you and me it seems smooth but only because the resolution is so small. In reality, the entire universe is nothing more than a digital operating system sitting on top of the solidity and mind of God. So what's real? To us the operating system is real because it's what we're designed to operate within. But there's an actual real that's denser, truly substantial, and before the universe, beyond the universe. And it's Jesus. He holds it all together. The operating system is His idea and it's His power that keeps it going. You and I are the bit of graphic on the screen. We think of it as so real. It's only real because of Him. And while the thought of this could cause us to feel small, insignificant, and almost nothing (and that's all true), remember that we are the object of His attention, love, and romance. Walk in that today. Jesus, I'm awestruck. I'm reminded of how little I know - how little I'm aware of. Let my mind be blown but redirected to You. Always You.

Praying Colossians 1 freebie   Well hey there, hello to ya today. So thankful you are listening to the show today. We're talking about prayer, which is a hugely important aspect of the Christian life and is incredibly needed in this era in which we find ourselves living. And there is tremendous promise in prayer. The Bible has so much to say about prayer, it's hard to overemphasize how much hope we have when we stand in prayer.   Paul, in his epistle, Colossians chapter one, that's our text for today. I'm going to read from the NLT and then I am going to pray this passage for you. And in the show notes for this episode I'm going to attach a link for a pdf you can download that has the prayer I'll be sharing on the episode, so you can access it on your phone or print it out and keep it with your Bible study items, use it in any way that would be a blessing to you and the people that you are praying for. I'll put that link at the very top of the show notes so that it will be easy to access no matter what app or podcast player you use to listen to podcasts. I'm really honored to be able to pray for you today, and for the 125th episode of The Burt (Not Ernie) Show, this seemed like a super fitting topic to focus on. Let's jump into this passage.   You're listening to The Burt (Not Ernie) Show, part of the Spark Network, now playing in the Edifi app. This is episode number 125.    So as I look at Colossians chapter one, I am going to read aloud verses three through fourteen, and I'm a quick reader so don't get too worried that it's gonna take me a long while to read this. I want to read it and then pray it. So as I read, would you listen closely, with some intentionality, and think about who you can pray these verses for? Who might God want you to stand in prayer for today?    We want to be disciples who in turn make disciples. A key aspect of the Great Commission, right? Prayer is one excellent way to focus on discipleship. Because you and I, we will grow in our walk with the Lord as we pray for others. And those others for whom we are praying are also going to grow in their life. It is actually a WIN-WIN. And we want as many wins as possible, especially when it feels like life kind of kicks us around a bit, knocks us down. Let's get some wins, you know what I mean. Right here, this is a big WIN-WIN for us.    I'm reading from the New Living Translation. Colossians 1:3-14   3 We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 4 For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God's people, 5 which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven. You have had this expectation ever since you first heard the truth of the Good News. 6 This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God's wonderful grace. 7 You learned about the Good News from Epaphras, our beloved co-worker. He is Christ's faithful servant, and he is helping us on your behalf.[b] 8 He has told us about the love for others that the Holy Spirit has given you. 9 So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10 Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. 11 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy,[c] 12 always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. 13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom[d] and forgave our sins.   Okay, this is quite a passage. Really so much here for us to believe God for in prayer.   Paul saying that they always pray for the recipients of this letter, can you even imagine what comfort that brought them? You know, when we pray for others, in a committed kind of way in particular, it really has an impact on them. It shores them up, it can steady them where they may not quite be feeling their sea legs ya know, kind of shaky and quaky. It is so good to know that we are not alone and somebody who loves Jesus is praying for us on the regular. It's a really big deal, and my personal desire is honestly that we all have somebody or several somebodies who pray for us. It's part of being in the body of Christ, and I really would love to see us get all sorts of fired up about praying for one another. What might change if we really leaned into that? Uh, yeah I actually think everything could change.   And when you pray for others, give thanks to the Lord as you pray. Like, the ability to pray and have our prayers heard by God is huge, so thank Him. And thank Him for your church body, thank Him for your praying friends and family, thank Him for all the things really. I could go on and on about what we should be thankful for.    Verse 4 - Paul is thankful for their faith in Jesus and their love for God's people. Can the same be said of us? Does anybody see evidence of my faith in Jesus? Is it apparent that I love God's people? I hope so. And does my love and my faith stem from my confident hope of what is coming for me in the future. Confident. Key word in this passage. Confident hope does not sound like, “Gee I sure hope so.” In Revelation, in His letters to the churches, Jesus said they'd forgotten their first love. When we remember what it was like when we first really got it, what this relationship with Jesus was really all about, man what a moment. Did we have an expectation of what would come in the next life back then? Yes indeed. That can still be our expectation and the source of our hope. God has things reserved for us in heaven. Isn't that exciting? Hang on to that first love. Jesus is always, always worth it, my friend.   Let's also pray that the Good News will continue to spread around the world. I have a shirt that says “Make Heaven Crowded” and I'll be honest, I have some shirts that remind me to pray (and a lock screen for my phone that I created to remind me to pray), a hoodie that reminds me that making disciples and being a good disciple myself, those things matter. I have a shirt to remind me that Esther 4:14 is true, and one to remind me that the work I do in my writing and podcasting, it needs to be handled with care, if you will. Like not flippant, but really focused and prayed up as I do the things I do. Make heaven crowded - three words that might be kind of cheesy in the way that only Christian tshirts can at times be cheesy. But it's important to me. I wear that shirt when I'm writing, when I'm recording audio content like this podcast. It's for me, to remind me of something really important. People matter. And where they spend eternity, that matters to Jesus and so it should matter to me.    Now I also have a shirt that mentions it being too people-y outside and a sweatshirt that says homebody. I'm telling you, if you know you know. I love people, but the way God made me, I don't refuel or recharge with all the peoples. I need to have time alone, and you know what, that's the time I use to write, to craft out podcast content, to work on things for my next prayer retreat in my private Facebook group. To pray for dozens of people (and I have a prayer list with dozens of names on it) If God had not wired me to be okay, to even be in my sweet spot, without loads of people around me all the time, I don't know that I could get done the things I do. So, how God wired you is part of how He will accomplish the good works He planned for you to be doing. Don't get annoyed by the gift (cuz sometimes that's a shady way of being annoyed at the gift giver). Pray and ask how this gifting fits in with how He made you and His good works that He prepared in advance for you to do. It's really that simple. I used to think I was a really cruddy Christian because I got worn out by too much people-y stuff. Now, I understand it so much better because I prayed about it and the Lord showed me some stuff. He'll show us some stuff if we pray and talk to Him about whatever it is we need to talk about.   This Good News about Jesus is bearing fruit everywhere and it is doing that by changing lives. Look, I've said it before and this here today won't be the last time I say this. The Word of God is life changing. God is in the life changing business. So, why are we so surprised when a life is changed by the Lord? Why should that surprise us? It's His way, so we should expect to see lives changed all the time. And hey, why shouldn't one of those lives be your life? You cannot possibly give me a good reason why not you. Why not you? Let God change your life and let your changed life bear fruit.    In verse 7 Paul mentions the person who told them the Good News. We are coworkers with every other Chrsitian who is sharing the Good News of Jesus. It's not a contest or a competition. We're working toward the same goal. Be a faithful servant of Jesus, yourself personally, and pray for others to be the same. And then, don't let competition get in there. God's got a crown for you and He's got a crown for them. No need to compete because what are you competing for? You can't obtain their crown and they can't somehow work really really hard and get your crown in place of their own. Let's pray for one another, and for the Kingdom to advance and take more and more ground. And let's show that the Holy Spirit really has given us love for one another.   Now, verse 9 on have very clear and specific ways we can pray for one another. First, don't stop praying. Be committed in your prayer life. Take it seriously. You know, when Jesus prayed to the Father, He took it seriously. And we don't always do that. So pray, don't stop praying and take it seriously.  Next, ask God to give the people you are praying for complete knowledge of His will and to give them spiritual wisdom and understanding. Ask the Lord to enable them to live in a way that always honors and pleases God, and for their lives to produce every kind of good fruit (feel free to study the fruit of the Spirit and to ask for those exact things in the lives of the people for whom you pray). And the last part of verse 10 reminds us to pray for people to grow as they learn to know God better and better. To grow, so this is showing us what growth as a Christian looks like, what maturity looks like. It shows itself as knowing God better and better. And it says to learn to know God better and better. Do you know Him better now than last year at this time? If you don't, you may need to LEARN to know Him better. Sit at His feet in prayer, read your Bible and pray and ask Him to teach you (learning means being taught, right?) teach you to know Him better. Take time to listen, to be quiet in His presence, to write down what you are learning, because writing it down will cement it more in your heart and mind. Note takers are world changers. There's so much truth behind that saying. Learn to know Him better. It's not enough, my friends, to go to church two Sundays a month and that's all the time you have for Jesus. That is not learning how to know Him better. Get serious about prayer, get serious about reading your Bible, get serious about heeding the conviction and leading of the Lord, get serious about the things the Bible says to get serious about.   Verse 11 - pray that they (those for whom you're praying) will be strengthened with all God's glorious power so they will have all the patience and endurance they need. Ask God to fill them with joy, and to give them a heart of thankfulness that always thanks the Father. Sometimes we are thanking Him in all things, but maybe not for all things. And I also gotta say, while it was not true at first like the first year or two dealing with serious heart problems, but for sure the last couple of years I can honestly say I have gone from thanking God in this situation to thanking Him for it. One result of perpetual thankfulness is that it spreads, and it's a good kind of spreading. I want to be contagious with things that actually matter. A bad attitude, a complaining spirit, is so contagious. So is gratitude and thankfulness. Pray that those people on your prayer list will be thankful. Ask God to enable them to share in the inheritance that only belongs to His people. For them to really, really know Jesus personally and to have the assurance of eternity with the Lord and not separated from Him. That's the only way to obtain our inheritance, so when pray for them to share in this inheritance, we are seeking God to call out to them, to draw them with cords of lovingkindness, for their salvation. We want those people for whom we pray to live in the light. Jesus is the Light of the world, so let's pray for people to live in the light and not to walk in any kind of darkness.  And be sure to praise Him for the work He has done in your life when He rescued you from the kingdom of darkness and transferred you into the Kingdom of His dear Son. Praise Him for purchasing our freedom and forgiving our sins.    Now that is how I pray Colossians chapter one for those on my prayer list. And to kind of make this grab-able (that's not a word but for today, let's pretend it is) I made a pdf you can download and the link is at the very top of the show notes and also down at the bottom with my other links, like to my private prayer group where we are going to begin a new weekly time of prayer and teaching about prayer so you can join that, it will go into mid December and then again in the new year, probably all of January and all of February. And also a link to my book A 60-Day Prayer Journal for Parents on Amazon.    Let me pray now for you based on what I put together in the pdf you can grab at the link. As I pray, just let the Lord comfort you and kind of lean in and choose to believe that He will answer this prayer on your behalf. He's got blessings and favor and goodness for you and I hope, I really mean this from the bottom of my heart, I hope that no matter where you are in life right now that you can lean in and believe Him for these blessings. Trust again. Love the Lord anew today. Hope in Him and receive whatever it is that He wants to give.    Colossians 1 Prayer PDF Prayer Retreat Group on Facebook Prayer Journal for Parents on Amazon

This is a song, possibly an early hymn, that Paul uses to teach on Jesus. Today we'll look at verse 16 which says, “For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things have been created through Him and for Him.” When you think of Jesus, what comes to mind? A man in His 30s walking about? Gentle and humble? Teaching, amazing crowds, working miracles? What is He like? What does He think? Is He a segment of the overall teaching of scripture? Is He the final bit of God's redemptive plan? Not according to Paul. This Jesus, the middle eastern carpenter, is not new to the scene. He's not just really old. He's not just the darling of the universe. No. He CREATED it! All of it! Every last bit is His design. It was His power that made it all. He did it. And this verse emphasizes some particulars. He created that which is visible - that is on earth. But guess what, that's not all. There are invisible things also created by Him - the things of heaven. And there's more. Paul lists a category of creation, or rather 4, that are uniquely His: thrones, dominions, rulers, and authorities. All words to denote the powerful. They are indeed 4 unique greek words. They mean something even if we can't parse them out perfectly. But here's what we can know - these rulers, powerful as they may be, whether visible or invisible, majestic, awful, frightening, oppressive…are all created by Him and for Him. There is literally nothing in all of creation that has any ounce of power where the name of Jesus isn't branded all over. He is the owner. And He will accomplish exactly what He intends through it. So you don't need to worry. They are powerful - yes. But they too must surrender, bow the knee, and yield their power to the One Who is up to more than you, or I, or any archangel or devil could possibly imagine. This is the Jesus of the Bible, the Jesus of Paul. Who is Jesus to you? Jesus, I admit, I just think way too little of You. Give me a Paul-sized vision of You. Bring that to my imagination today.

If you appreciate this work, consider supporting it - https://www.patreon.com/seekgodtogether https://www.seekGodtogether.com Today is the first installment of several in Colossians 1. Verses 15-20 are a soaring song about Jesus. You can read it for yourself but today we'll read verse 15 which says, “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” What does God look like? What IS God like and what does He do? Is there a question more important? You can spend your entire life building your own little empire, staying healthy, increasing your learning, having a family, fill in the blank, but get this question wrong, and the results could be catastrophic. There is nothing more important for you to ponder than God Himself. And this isn't just for the religious. Everyone on earth including you has two things in common. First - you are currently alive. Second - you will eventually die. Contemplating the Creator and engaging the Creator is truly the most critical activity for a human being and every human owes it to themselves to ask the biggest questions. Paul has an answer for the God question. God is Jesus. Jesus is God. Jesus is the image of God. Why would God need an image? Well, because God is invisible. When you picture God, what do you see? An old man, a flashing throne, an amorphous swirling glob of energy? They're all wrong. The answer is nothing. There is nothing to see. The God of the Bible has no form, no physical features, nothing our senses can experience. Does that bother you? The implication is that without an image, without revelation, there would be no way for you or me to know or experience God. Thankfully He has an image. Jesus Himself. An image carries the properties of the deity to people so they can understand. Zeus had images - many of them. They were all dumb lifeless statues. And as grand a statue sitting in the Parthenon may have been, it was still carved by human hands, and utterly powerless. But not Jesus. The true God images Himself in a way humans can truly grasp - a human image. But while Jesus is a flesh and blood image, He is more. He is the quote “firstborn” over all creation. Firstborn. Some take firstborn to mean first made. But that's not what it says. God doesn't birth children. But He does have a firstborn - in Greek it's - pro-TO-tokos and means preeminent. Don't understand it? Join the club. All we need to know is that Jesus Himself predates the manger, and the universe itself. He predates time and all, literally all of creation is His - He's the darling of all creation - the preeminent one. It might be enough for today to linger in the thought of a timeless Christ, the accessible image of God Himself. We don't have to understand. It is enough to behold and worship. Jesus, You are blowing my mind. Self-existent image of the invisible God. I am in awe of You.

Either you choose to have Christ's reconciling work bring you to communion with the Father, or ultimately that will happen later. I choose to be friends with God now.Revelation 216 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”Be thirsty for God.WANT MORE? Check out Nicole's book Help!

Because conflict in the church is happening, and Paul (the planter of churches) is writing to address those issues help them through those conflicts.THEME OF COLOSSIANS:The overarching theme of this book is how Christ is in all things, and the ramifications of that for us.Most commentators agree that perhaps someone in the church was teaching different rituals and superstitions for a “different level” of faith, a “Jesus plus ‘this ritual'” – and Paul is returning the church to this true doctrine, that Jesus is ALL. There is nothing else we must add to our faith. Jesus is ALL.LET'S READ TOGETHER: Colossians 1:3-7 - 3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God's people— 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel 6 that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God's grace.WANT MORE?

Morning: Exodus 24:8; Leviticus 17:11; Ezekiel 36:25; Mark 14:24; John 19:34; Colossians 1:20; Hebrews 9:12; Hebrews 10:4; Hebrews 10:22; 1 Peter 1:18–20 One of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. “Behold the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you.”—“The life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls.”—It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.—And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.”—He entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.—Peace by the blood of his cross.—Knowing that you were ransomed… not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. He… was made manifest in the last times for your sake.—I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean,… from all your idols I will cleanse you.—Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience. Exodus 24:8 (Listen) 8 And Moses took the blood and threw it on the people and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words.” (ESV) Leviticus 17:11 (Listen) 11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life. (ESV) Ezekiel 36:25 (Listen) 25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. (ESV) Mark 14:24 (Listen) 24 And he said to them, “This is my blood of the1 covenant, which is poured out for many. Footnotes [1] 14:24 Some manuscripts insert new (ESV) John 19:34 (Listen) 34 But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. (ESV) Colossians 1:20 (Listen) 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. (ESV) Hebrews 9:12 (Listen) 12 he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. (ESV) Hebrews 10:4 (Listen) 4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. (ESV) Hebrews 10:22 (Listen) 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. (ESV) 1 Peter 1:18–20 (Listen) 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you (ESV) Evening: 1 Kings 1:36; Psalm 72:18–19; Isaiah 65:16; Matthew 6:13; 2 Corinthians 1:20; Hebrews 6:13; Hebrews 6:16–18; Revelation 3:14 Amen. “Amen! May the Lord, the God of my lord the king, say so.”—He who blesses himself in the land shall bless himself by the God of truth, and he who takes an oath in the land shall swear by the God of truth. When God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself…. For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.—“The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness.”—For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.—Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. Blessed be his glorious name forever;… Amen and Amen! 1 Kings 1:36 (Listen) 36 And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada answered the king, “Amen! May the LORD, the God of my lord the king, say so. (ESV) Psalm 72:18–19 (Listen) 18   Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel,    who alone does wondrous things.19   Blessed be his glorious name forever;    may the whole earth be filled with his glory!      Amen and Amen! (ESV) Isaiah 65:16 (Listen) 16   so that he who blesses himself in the land    shall bless himself by the God of truth,  and he who takes an oath in the land    shall swear by the God of truth;  because the former troubles are forgotten    and are hidden from my eyes. (ESV) Matthew 6:13 (Listen) 13   And lead us not into temptation,    but deliver us from evil.1 Footnotes [1] 6:13 Or the evil one; some manuscripts add For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen (ESV) 2 Corinthians 1:20 (Listen) 20 For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. (ESV) Hebrews 6:13 (Listen) The Certainty of God's Promise 13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, (ESV) Hebrews 6:16–18 (Listen) 16 For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. 17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. (ESV) Revelation 3:14 (Listen) To the Church in Laodicea 14 “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation.
