The Tongue - The Transforming Power of “Delightful” Words – The Blessing of Christ, the Living Word - Friday, October 2nd

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw his glory, glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth …. For of his fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. John 1:14, 16

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, 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. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. Colossians 1:15-20

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

The words of our Colossians passage are "Delightful" words to us as they describe how "Christ is everything." As you read again each description of Christ in the following list, let these "Delightful" words fully penetrate your mind and heart:

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God

He .... is supreme over all creation

Everything was created through him and for him

He holds all creation together

Christ is also the head of the church

He is first in everything

Through him God reconciled everything to himself

He (God) made peace with everything .... by means of Christ’s blood on the cross

How delightfully reassuring is the reality that "Christ is everything." He is the Living Word who provides for all needs and ultimately solves all issues for all mankind and all creation. How blessed we are as we rest in the amazing provision of his unlimited grace, eternal redemption, and unconditional love.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I give to you my worship and praise. You alone are worthy to receive glory and honor. I bow before you in surrender and devotion. Christ Jesus, you are everything! Thank you for all that you are to me forever. Amen!
