“Jesus Is Everything”

Pastor Duane Cross | 03.25.2012


“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 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. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” Colossians 1:15-20(NIV)

I. SUPREME over all creation.

“All things were created by him for him” (Colossians 1:16)

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalms 139:13)

2. SUPREME in redemption.


“Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.” (Colossians 1:21)

“Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world...following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature.” Ephesians 2:1-3(NLT)


“But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight without blemish, free from accusation...” (Colossians 1:22)

“Much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.” (Romans 5:15)

“Much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in...Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:17)

“He made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:21(NIV)
