003 | Everything

"The main point is that Jesus is God, and he is woven into the fabric of all creation." Whitney Kuniholm wrote this in reflecting on this passage from Colossians 1 in the book I am currently journaling through titled The Essential Jesus: 100 Readings Through the Bible's Greatest Story.
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 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. (Colossians 1:15-16)
The purpose of God's creative act is present in everything created. When you consider and accept that everything has been created for Christ it changes how you think about everything. Everything was designed and created for the Son of God. The sun, the planets, the stars, the sky, the ocean, the mountains, water, air, rivers, lakes, rocks, all animals, fishes, birds, insects, plants and flowers ... and us. The purpose of all of creation, including us, is Jesus. He is the reason for the Creation. Everything was made for Him. We were made for him.

God has given us the freedom to live life for ourselves or anything we desire ... or for Him. He has given us complete freedom to align with his purpose for creating us or not. It is our choice, but we were designed and made for Jesus.

THE Purpose ....... of everything created. THE purpose of me.
