Colossians 1:15-20

Colossians 1:15-20
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is 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. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.

Reading these verses Beloved is like having a powerful floodlight shining and revealing the purpose of the Father and the love of the Father for His Son. In perfect humility and perfect obedience You aligned Your will to the Father's will and this perfect union resulted in our salvation - the greatest love story of all time - the love of the Father for his Son and for us sinners. Thank you Jesus for bowing down Your head and saying, 'not my will but Thine be done."
