By Him and For Him

“For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.” Col 1:16

Jesus Christ is not only the instrument of creation, but also the author of creation. Colossians informs us of His exalted position. “By Him All things were created.” Don’t miss this. Let it sink in. We should be struck by this verse in the same way it might have struck the first century reader. It probably jarred their sensibilities and should jar ours. Reading this verse should make us feel as though we had come upon a speed bump unprepared.

He created all things.

Think about that.
