Colossians 1:15-23 “All Things”

Have you ever taken a moment to look up at the night sky and ponder the immense vastness of the universe?  Have you ever considered how something as small as an ant or a mosquito perceives the world around them? Did you know that light travels further in a single second than most humans will travel in a lifetime?  Things like this can be mind-boggling.

Yet, despite our lack of ability to comprehend some of these things, our Scripture today reminds us that they all exist because of Jesus.  Not only that, they all exist for Him, through Him, AND are held together by Him! Scripture says that God is aware of all of it, knowing the names of every star that HE placed there and, even in the overwhelming greatness of creation, God knows each one of us by name and concerns Himself with every aspect of our lives.

Questions to take home:

  1. Can you think of some other Scripture passages that reflect the majesty and awesomeness of God when it comes to creation?  Passages like Genesis 1, John 1:1-17; and the final chapters of Job, are all great places to see the greatness of God’s handiwork!
  2. How does seeing the sheer enormity and immensity of God’s creation change your perception about God?  Will it change how you interact with God?
  3. The extent of God creative ability is rivaled only by the reach of God’s redemption and restoration in Jesus Christ!  Scripture says that all things are reconciled to Him. How does this impact your view of Jesus work of salvation? What difference does that make?
