Episode 47 - What is Your Superpower?
Colossians Series - Episode 2
Last week we started a new series on The Sojo Show podcast on the book of Colossians. If you didn’t listen to that, we encourage you to go listen because we gave a little bit of an overview!
Today we're gonna dive a bit deeper into two verses in Colossians chapter 1:
“15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.”
In verse 15, we see that Jesus is the Son and image of the invisible God. Paul is letting us know that the whole reason we can put our faith in the gospel is because Jesus shows us what we can't see.
Jesus is a picture to us of all of the glory of God that we couldn't see otherwise.
If you are ever needing to see the heart of God, look to Jesus because that's where you'll find it. You will find His holiness, his sovereignty, but also his love and his compassion as well.
In verses 13 and 14, Paul’s giving us an outline of the gospel. Then in verse 15, Paul tells us that Jesus is God. In verse 16, he goes on to clearly state that Jesus is the creator of all.
These verses show the supremacy of Christ and are packed so full!
The important thing of this passage is to realize that anything you can point to in life is under the sovereignty of the creator God, who is Christ because of the Trinity. He is sovereign over all things, whether they're visible or invisible.
Jesus is Lord. He is sovereign. It's in His control. We don’t need to worry. There may be responsibilities or choices we need to make, but that doesn't change the fact that he is Lord and he is sovereign and he's got it handled.
Where does this leave us? How should this hit our hearts?
We can go forward without fear. If we are trusting in His work on the cross to be more than conquerors, we are set. There is nothing that can come against us, that can hurt us because of Christ in us.
