DIG for Thursday the 18th of February…..He was and is and always will be…..Colossians 1 v 17

There are some things in this world that I do not understand, there are also some things written in the Bible that I cannot explain.

This verse in Colossians is one such verse.

Paul says that Jesus was before all things, meaning that He was in existence before anything else.

Of course He was, as we’ve seen already he was the agent of Creation and He is God, so He must have been before all things.

Jesus said He was the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end (Revelation 1 v 8).

By this He means that He was in existence before all things and He will still be in existence after all things end.

Now I cannot explain how this can be; however this is what the Word says.

Jesus is also the reason the world and universe is still here.

We are told that by him all things consist.

Jesus holds everything together; He is the reason that there is a world in the first place but also the reason that it is still here.

Physicists will tell you that they have found “this particle” and “that particle” helping to explain why matters sticks together and has mass, spending billions of pounds, dollars and euros in the process.

I can tell them how things stay together; it is by the will of Jesus.

The more I understand about what Jesus has done and is doing the more I marvel that He has time for me!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for Jesus and for His amazing work”.

Colossians 1 v 17…..And he is before all things, and by him all things consist
