One in Being with the Father

He is the image of the invisible God and the firstborn of every creature.
—Colossians 1:15

Devotion:

Having demanded that no images of God be made, God, at length, in obscurity, in the little village in Judea, brought forth One who, when He was grown, was revealed as the Son of God. Jesus is not made after the image of God. Jesus is not made in the image of God. The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God.

Jesus Christ is the only babe that was ever born who was older than his mother when he was born.

This little baby was “God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God.”

I talked to a man one time and asked him who Jesus was and he said, “Oh, He’s the greatest man that ever lived.”

I said, “Anything more?”

He said, “Not that I can think of.”

I said, “Let me tell you this. He is the almighty eternal Creator of the galaxies; He is the everlasting omniscient God almighty.”

Immediately his eyes half-filled with tears, and he said to me, “I’ve never heard that before in my life, but I always thought that is the way it ought to be.”

 

Question to ponder: The divinity of Christ makes Him Savior. What does His humanity mean for us?
