Wednesday July 25th, Colossians 1: 15-18 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. We can speculate all we want but we will never totally know God in Heaven. The gift that has been given to us is the Emmanuel, God with us, the one we call Jesus. To know Jesus is to know all we need to know about God. Jesus’ message? Love God, Love others! That is what life is all about. It is not Gognito Ergo Sum, I think therefore I am, it is Amo Ergo Sum, I Love therefore I am. And love is not just a feeling, it is a verb. That may call us on different paths of action, and indeed often does, but never confuse the path with the purpose.
