Why Jesus?: Seeing God

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Colossians 1:15)

Could anyone else have done what Jesus did – dying for our sins on that ugly cross and rising from the dead to secure the victory? Nope. It had to be Jesus. Period. He is unique in all of the universe; without him we would be lost. We’re going to find out this week what makes him so special.

Second: Jesus existed before one molecule of creation came into being. He is everlasting. He has priority over everything and everyone because he was here first.

More tomorrow.

Think: How well do you know who Jesus really is? Does the idea of knowing him better excite you or does it feel like homework? Why?

Pray: Thank God for letting you know Jesus through faith and through studying him in the Bible. Thank him that Jesus allows you to “see” the Father – and that Jesus has always been.

Do: If you’ve got a minute, go back and read all the verses linked to above.
