For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. – Colossians 1:19-20
The apostle Paul states that Christ is the summation of the purposes of God. We see that God is bringing his creation back (reconciling) to Himself through Jesus. This has big ramifications! This means that all of history, all of the Scripture, and all of our lives are to be seen in light of Christ and His work on the cross. Do we see everything this way? Are we living in such a way that we are proclaiming God’s pleasure in Jesus to those around us?
