The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. Colossians 1:15
Jesus is the only begotten Son, the image of the invisible God. The firstborn over all creation, when you understand this, you understand the importance of Jesus birth. He wasn’t just a miracle that happened, he was Gods plan for salvation to save the world
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. Colossians 1:16
Jesus was giving all authority and power by his Father who is our Creator. He wasn’t just a baby lying in the manger, he is the Kings of Kings and Lord of Lords. Yet the world didn’t recognize him, despised and rejected him and eventually killed him.
But all things were created through and for him, meaning he is the only way to eternal life. He is sitting on the throne in Heaven and will return again.
He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. Colossians 1:17-18
Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He was sent on a mission from God to save the world as an ordinary baby. Rejoice in the Lord for this day, because the head of Satan has been crushed. Sin and death have been defeated because Jesus is the firstborn among the dead Amen
