This is some of what
the Apostle Paul
told the Christians at Colosse
about the Lord Jesus Christ:
11 We are praying, too, that you will be filled with his mighty, glorious strength so that you can keep going no matter what happens - always full of the joy of the Lord,
12 and always thankful to the Father who has made us fit to share all the wonderful things that belong to those who live in the Kingdom of light.
13 For he has rescued us out of the darkness and gloom of Satan's kingdom and brought us into the Kingdom of his dear Son,
14 who bought our freedom with his blood and forgave us all our sins.
15 Christ is the exact likeness of the unseen God. He existed before God made anything at all, and, in fact,
16 Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth, the things we can see and the things we can't; the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers and authorities; all were made by Christ for his own use and glory.
17 He was before all else began and it is his power that holds everything together.
18 He is the Head of the body made up of his people - that is, his Church - which he began; and he is the Leader of all those who arise from the dead, so that he is first in everything;
19 for God wanted all of himself to be in his Son.
Colossians chapter 1 from verse 11
