Making Much of Christ

Nobody writes a biography of a baby. Yet, the baby Jesus already had an entire Old Testament written about Him. Much of it was veiled because the name “Jesus” was only given Him at His human birth, but that does not detract from all His impressive accomplishments recorded in the Old Testament.

Add to that all the work Jesus accomplished during His relatively short earthly stay, as well as His ongoing work in the Church and the world, and the excellences of our Lord Jesus are unmatched. When you contemplate Jesus, do not get to focussed on one truth that you forget about the rest.

Colossians 1:15-20 contains the most condensed form of all the beauties and glories of Jesus.

He is the image of the invisible God, (God in see-able form!)
the firstborn of (most-honoured in) all creation.
For by him all things were created,
  in heaven and on earth,
  visible and invisible,
  whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—
all things were created through him
and for him.
And 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,
the firstborn from the dead,
that in everything he might be preeminent.
For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,
and through him to reconcile to himself all things,
  whether on earth or in heaven,
making peace by the blood of his cross.
