Join me each Monday Morning for a brief, but reflective look into a passage of Scripture. There’s no better way to start our week!
Read Colossians 1:13-20 from the NIV below:
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 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. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
In God’s great mercy, He sent His Son Jesus to rescue us from sin and death. We can have forgiveness of sin and spend eternity with God if we put all our faith and trust in Jesus and His sacrificial death on the cross for payment of our sins. (verses 13-14)
