featuring some of my favourite words

Here are some exciting things i learnt from Colossians about incarnation:

  • In the Son we have redemption
  • He is the head of the body, the church
  • He is the beginning and first born from the dead
  • He has reconciled to Himself all things by His blood on the cross
  • We are reconciled by His death in the flesh
  • He will present us blameless and holy on the last day
  • In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge
  • Christ is the object for faith
  • In Christ is help to live and persevere
  • In Christ the fullness of the Deity dwells bodily
  • Therefore He is all we need to live and persevere, we need nothing else 'spiritual' There is nothing else spiritual.
  • We were buried with Him and raised with Him
  • God made us alive together with Him
  • He did this by cancelling the legal demands that stood against us, nailing them to the cross
  • We died with Christ to the elemental spirits of the world, we are not bound by the world, or by religion and have no need for it's rules.
good non?
