Why Follow Jesus? (Luke 9:23-25) -

Colossians 1:15-20 is Paul’s Sublime “Christ Hymn.”

 

Don’t waste your life! Follow (spend time with) Jesus…

 

15Christ is the visible image of the invisible God

1.)     Because He is_________________________________________________________ !

 

 15…He is the firstborn of all creation,

2.) Because He is______________________________________________ of all creation!

 

16for through Him God created everything   in the heavenly realms and on earth.

3.) Because He is_________________________________________________ !

 

16…He made the things we can see   and the things we can’t see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.    Everything was created through Him and for Him.

4.) Because He is__________________________________________________________ !

 

17 He existed before anything else,   and He holds all creation together.

5.) Because He is__________________________________________________________ !

 

18 Christ is also the head of the church, which is His body.

6.) Because He is__________________________________________________________ !

 

18He is the beginning,

7.) Because He is__________________________________________________________ !

 

18  …the firstborn from the dead.

8.) Because He is__________________________________________________________ !

 

18  …So He is first in everything. 19 For God in all His fullness  was pleased to live in Christ,

9.) Because He is__________________________________________________________ !

 

20 and through Him God reconciled  everything to Himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

10.) Because He is_________________________________________________________ !

 

THIS JESUS loves us and calls us and invites us to follow (to spend time with) HIM!
