Day 31 –
The Supremacy of Christ…
“Christ in his human nature is the visible discovery of the invisible God, and he that hath seen Him hath seen the Father... He was born or begotten before all the creation, before any creature was made; which is the Scripture way of representing eternity, and by which the eternity of God is represented to us.” Complete Passage of Matthew Henry’s Commentary on Colossians 1:15-23 of the Supremacy of Christ @ http://biblehub.com/colossians/1-15.htm
Scriptural Basis for the Supremacy of Christ
The Supremacy of
[Christ] the Son of God
15The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16For 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. 17He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18And 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. 19For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20and 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. 21Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant. Colossians 1:15- 23 NIV @ http://biblehub.com/niv/colossians/1.htm And at the Variety of Commentaries located http://biblehub.com/colossians/1-15.htm
*Special Affirmation – As a Believer, my Father God blesses me for having faith in the gift of salvation because I have been reconciled by Christ’s physical body through death to establish me as holy for presentation in Father God’s sight, without blemish and free from accusation. My Father God honors my faith which is established and firm from the reconciliation gained from Christ’s sacrifice, and He will reward me for my belief and faith.
Matthew Henry Commentary
“Christ in his human nature is the visible discovery of the invisible God, and he that hath seen Him hath seen the Father. Let us adore these mysteries in humble faith, and beholdthe glory of the Lord in Christ Jesus. He was born or begotten before all the creation, before any creature was made; which is the Scripture way of representing eternity, and by which the eternity of God is represented to us. All things being created by Him were created for him; being made by his power, they were made according to his pleasure, and for his praise and glory. He not only created them all at first, but it is by the word of his power that they are upheld. Christ as Mediator is the Head of the body, the church; all grace and strength are from him; and the church is his body. All fullness dwells in him; a fullness of merit and righteousness, of strength and grace for us. God showed his justice in requiring full satisfaction…” Complete Passage of Colossians 1:15-2 @ http://biblehub.com/colossians/1-15.htm
“What is the supremacy of Christ and what are its implications?
The supremacy of Christ is a doctrine surrounding the authority of Jesus and His God-nature. In the simplest of terms, to affirm the supremacy of Christ is to affirm that Jesus is God…” Complete Commentary @ http://www.gotquestions.org/supremacy-of-Christ.html
