Isn’t it amazing and tragic that we can be so blind as to have a treasure and not appreciate it? Yet is that often not the case with those of us who are Christians? May today’s devotional be used of God to open many eyes. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Colossians 1:15-18 (ESV)
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 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. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 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.
HE IS JESUS
“There’s a treasure great in beauty,
Far surpassing earth’s great wealth,
He is Jesus, Prince of Glory,
Source of all grace, peace, and health.
There’s a fountain ever flowing,
Satisfying all who drink,
He is Jesus, spring of joy
To all who hail Him as their King
There’s a power, holy power,
Breaking bonds of captive men,
He is Jesus, mighty Jesus,
Holy warrior and sinner’s friend.
There’s a Savior rich in mercy,
Quick to pardon all our sins.
He is Jesus, great Redeemer,
Reconciling God and man.
There’s a glorious Lord returning,
And all will bow to Him alone.
He is Jesus, King of nations,
Reigning from His gracious throne.
There is one to whom our praises
Will through ever age ascent.
He is Jesus, King forever,
Whose wondrous rule will never end.
