Colossians 1:16 “for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him.

Christ is CREATOR

Genesis One

In the Beginning GOD…..

Christ made all things

The good, the bad and the ugly

If He made all things:

He knows all things – intimately

He can repair the things that are broken

He can REMAKE all the things we have ruined

you can be born again

If Jesus made everything then Jesus was here BEFORE the beginning of time.

Jesus predates light and dark

Jesus predates dirt and water

Jesus predates people and critters

If Jesus made everything then:

    • He is more powerful than you
      • You can only make stuff from what He has already made
        • People are re-arrangers – not creators
    • He is smarter than you
      • You don’t know how everything works – works together
    • He has WAY MORE EXPERIENCE than you
      • You may be able to say you have 50 or 60 years experience at a thing
      • God has ETERNAL EXPERIENCE at ALL THINGS
    • He is WAY MORE CAPABLE than you
      • He can do immensely more in a split second with a Word than you could ever be capable of on your best day with all the tools of the world available to you.
    • You can take the weight of the world off your shoulders and let Him carry it for you
      • How much stress weight are you carrying for no real reason?
      • What are you worrying about that you have no real control over
      • What are you stressing over that will probably never, ever happen?
      • How much of God’s business are you TRYING to do on your own?
      • STOP IT!!!

You were made by Jesus

You were made for Jesus

Christ is your life and your purpose

You EXIST because of God

You EXIST for God

Does your life prove this truth?

Do your actions prove this truth?

Illustrations:

A piece of paper and a wad of paper trash

BOTH are Gods creation

both have value

One is beyond mans repair

Neither are beyond God’s ability to repair
