Here is a break down of one of my favorite passages in Scripture – Col 1:14-20. My Living Room did this in the beginning of the school year and it was very helpful. This list of 15 truths about Christ is great to reflect on while striving to live a gospel-centered life.
1. In him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
2. He is the image of the invisible God.
3. He is the firstborn of all creation.
4. By him all things were created.
5. All things were created through him.
6. All things were created for him.
7. He is before all things.
8. In him all things hold together.
9. He is the head of the body, the church.
10. He is the beginning.
11. He is the first born from the dead.
12. In everything he is preeminent (surpassing over all).
13. In him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.
14. He reconciles all things to himself, whether on earth or in heaven.
15. He makes peace by the blood of his cross.
