Brothers and sisters: Christ Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For in him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the Body, the Church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things he himself might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile all things for him, making peace by the Blood of his cross through him, whether those on earth or those in heaven.
Jesus is the beginning and the end. The Alpha and Omega. He is all we need to fulfill our life. How can anyone doubt His existence, His Kingship? He is the head of the Church, the one to whom we owe all our joy, our praise and worship. God incarnate. If you doubt look into your heart and find the seeds that were planted before you were created. His love will bring you the peace, love and joy you have been searching for.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I offer you praise and adoration for all that you have done in my life and in the lives of my friends and family. You are all I need in my life. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Come with joy into the presence of the Lord
