 March 19, 2017 | Pastor John Bayles | The Supremacy of Christ | Colossians 1:15-23

The text today is one of the greatest Christological presentations found in the Scriptures. The inspiration of the Holy Spirit is clearly visible in these lines shaped in the form of a poem. How often the Holy Spirit inspires both the words and the form when bringing forth the beauty and magnificence of Christ. As Psalm 65:8 so beautifully states: “The whole earth is filled with awe at Your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.” Here in this text is a three-fold Psalm of praise for the person and work of Christ. The prophet Jeremiah stated this well: “This is what the Lord says: You say about this place, It is a desolate waste, without people or animals. Yet in the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem that are deserted, inhabited by neither people nor animals, there will be heard once more the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings to the house of the Lord, saying, Give thanks to the Lord Almighty, for the Lord is good; His love endures forever! For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before, says the Lord” (Jer. 33:10, 11). May these verses take wing and form a living song in our hearts today of the Supremacy of Christ!
