The Supremacy of Christ

Colossians

red star The Supremacy of Christ

He is the image of the invisible God , the Firstborn over all creation . For by him all things were created : things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities ; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church ; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 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.
