Let us rejoice in who Jesus is. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. Jesus is our Master, and Savior. Jesus saves! As I meditate on the word of God, my heart rejoices in who Jesus is! He is not merely a son of God. He is not merely a great prophet or wise man. Jesus is God! 1 Colossians 1:15-20 says so much about who Jesus is.
Jesus is the image of the invisible God (1:15). All of the power of God is centered in Him. Jesus created the universe (1:16a); He claims the universe (1:16b); and He controls the universe 1:17).
Jesus has absolute sovereignty (1:18a), and superiority (1:18b). Jesus is the head of the church. He originated life and He overcame death. Jesus is the leader of all who will rise from the dead. Jesus defeated death and returned to life in a resurrected body. For that reason, we who follow Him have the hope, and evidence that we, too, will rise after death and spend eternity in heaven with Him. Yes, it's all about Jesus today! Jesus saves!
Jesus is the only way to peace with God. Colossians 1:20 sums it so nicely, "and through Him God reconciled everything to Himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ's blood on the cross." Let us rejoice in who Jesus is. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. Jesus is our Master, and Savior. Jesus saves!
