Another Name for Everything – July 28, 2019
Scripture: Colossians 1: 15-28
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the one who is first over all creation. Because all things were created by him: both in the heavens and on the earth, the things that are visible and the things that are invisible. Whether they are thrones or powers, or rulers or authorities, all things were created through him and for him. (Colossians 1: 15-16)
This understanding of the nature of Jesus Christ is Christianity’s unique contribution among the world’s religions: that everything visible, without exception, is the outpouring of God. Christ, Logos, the blueprint for being fully human is the Christ-mystery we are called to live into as human beings. When Christ is everything, how I walk through the world changes.
