Why You Exist - Wednesday November 26, 2014
And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature and upholds all things. . . . Hebrews 1:3
Jesus came to this earth. He came as the exact image, the representation, of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation This means He is first in rank, He is the top of all creation. God has given Him the reign of all: "For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created by Him and for Him" (Colossians 1:16). Amazing!

Did you realize that about yourself? You were created for Jesus Christ. You were created by Him and for Him. People often wonder what their purpose in life is, why do they exist, why are they even here? People sometimes kill themselves because they don't have a reason to live. You are created for Jesus Christ-that is why you exist! If you know that, your life will have meaning; if you don't know that, your life, no matter what else you do, is going to be empty.

Paul goes on to tells us more about Christ: "And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything" (Colossians 1:17-18). That's how it is all going to get summed up, folks. He is the winner! He will have first place in everything.

One day Jesus will appear at the top of creation. Does He have first place in your life now?
