CHRIST the Creator! Colossians 1 In the

CHRIST the Creator!
Colossians 1
In the next 4 days our sole focus will be on Jesus being the Son of God and the second person of the trinity!
This is important as people are reading books by Dan Brown and the like who claim that Jesus was a mortal prophet, made divine by a vote at the council of Nicea in 325AD. What they don’t realise is that the Council was answering the Arians belief that Jesus was created. Even before this date there is much evidence to show that people believed in the divinity of Christ.
We have just come through the season of carols such as:
God of God, Light of Light,
Lo! he abhors not the Virgin’s womb;
Very God, Begotten not created.

The word ‘begotten’ carries 2 truths:
The Father God is not God the Son and vice versa.
The Father and the Son are one God not two Gods.
CS Lewis wrote “We don’t mean there are 2 Gods, we mean there is 1 God. When you beget, you beget something of the same kind of things. When you make or create, you make some thing different to you.”

For all eternity the Father has seen the mirror of Himself in His Son and the reflection of Himself found in the Son. There was never a time when the Son did not exist and when God could not be seen in Him.

In fact Jesus Christ is the Creator! v16
And because of this:
Jesus is the one who can wipe your past away, v13-14.
Jesus is the one who can create new things out of nothing, v16.
Jesus is the one who can keep your life and situation going, v17

One day when all is revealed, every one of us will bow our knee and confess in the power of the Holy Spirit that Jesus is the Lord of all creation to the glory of the Father.
