“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of 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.” ~ Colossians 1:15-20
Terri and I have been reconciled to God through the blood of Jesus Christ, which He shed on the cross on our behalf. On the basis of who He is and all He has done, we live by faith in Him, the Preeminent One, who rules in our lives, church, and ministry. We seek to be faithful to Him, because He is faithful to us. And because “Jesus is Worth it!” . . .
