Look to Jesus

Today we’ll continue with some of your favorites (or the passages you have questions about). Email (andy@stm-umc.org) or message me with any passages you’d like added or that you have a question about!

Today we are looking at Colossians 1: 15-16

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation, 16 for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him.

Today we are looking at one of my favorite passages in the bible, and one that is so very important.  Today in Colossians, we see Paul say this.  Jesus Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. 

In other words, if you want to know who the Father is, you have to look to the Son. When we see the Son, we see the Father. So if you want to fully understand who the Father is, look to the Son.  

Through Jesus, we see God comforting the brokenhearted. Through Jesus, we see God weeping at the tomb of His friend Lazarus. Through Jesus, we see the Father heal the sick, raise the dead, forgive sinners, and bring restoration and healing.  

For a long time in my life, I thought God was angry with me.  I thought God was against me. I thought God didn’t like me.  You know what I wasn’t doing?  I wasn’t looking to Jesus. I was looking everywhere else. But I wasn’t looking to Jesus. 

To know God, look to Jesus. To understand the Father, look to the Son.  To see who God truly is, look to Jesus. 

Read a Gospel.  Pray through it.  Look at what Jesus says.  Look at what Jesus does.  Look at Jesus.  And then you will know the Father. 

It’s always only about Jesus.  Look to Jesus.
