Jesus: The Matchless One, Part 2
|Colossians 1 (NKJV™)|
|15||He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.|
|16||For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.|
|17||And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.|
|18||And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.|

Last week, we discovered that Jesus was far from being "one among many" in the pantheon of spiritual representations of God. He is God and is matchless as the Revealer of His Father and as the Creator of the world. As a follow-up on this, today we discover that Jesus is the one who maintains His creation. He also directs the affairs of His representatives on earth—the church. So the train of thought is this: Jesus came to reveal the Father to His creation and now He uses us to reveal Jesus to the world.
Some people think that Jesus was a prophet or a good teacher. Some have even said that He was a shaman or an extraterrestrial being. These misconceptions were the same 2000 years ago--and Jesus is still misunderstood. This series clarifies who Jesus is by looking at both His humanity and His deity, and gives us a platform from which to answer questions about who He is.
