Jesus—the One and Only

“For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him.” - Colossians 1:16

Jesus Christ is the power of creation. The little baby who was born in a manger was the great Creator talked about in Genesis chapter one. In fact, that little baby created His mother Mary in the first place. When He was born, He was as old as His Father, and older than His mother.

If you look at the little word “for” in our passage today, you will discover that it means “motion toward an object.” The reason for everything was Jesus. Not only was everything made by Him, but it was made for Him. And everything is coming back to Him.

All of life will climax in Jesus Christ. He is the power of creation, the preserver of creation, and the purpose of creation.

Stop right now and ponder this: Everything was made by Him, Through Him all things hold together, and before Him one day every knee shall bow—every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
