Colossians 1:15-18 (MSG)
We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God's original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels, everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body.
He made it all. He has organized every detail. He manages it all. None of my life is chance or happenstance but a part of His great plan.
I can enjoy great comfort in this knowledge.
