Our steadfast hope

It’s a marvelous mystery that in the ages before time began, Jesus was there. Yes, he became the Incarnate one, our Emmanuel (God with Us) at his birth in Bethlehem, but he was always here. In the first chapter of John, we read: In the beginning was the Word; and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

 In Jesus, dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority ~ Colossians 2:8-11

According to minister-author Matthew Henry, “The fullness of the Godhead dwells in Christ really and not figuratively; for he is both God and man.”

In our finite minds, it’s hard to conceptualize the awesomeness of the nature of Christ. It’s not so much a matter to consume and comprehend through logic but more of a respectful apprehending through faith. For how can the limited mind of a finite being claim with any authority the process of an infinite God? It’s impossible. But with God, all things are possible.

In Hebrews 1:8-12 we find… Of the Son, God says, ‘Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom…You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the works of Your hands; they will perish, but You remain…You will roll them up; like a garment they will also be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will not come to an end.’
