Words from the Heart for Tuesday August 4th, 2020
For 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.
Colossians 1:16 (NIV)
Creator of All Things
Sam Panopolous was the creator of the Hawaiian Pizza. The owner of the Satellite Restaurant in Chatham Ontario at the time described the creation this way: “That was back in the late ’50s, the early ’60s. Pizza wasn’t in Canada — nowhere. Pizza was coming in through Detroit, through Windsor, and I was in Chatham then. That was the third stop. Along the way, we threw some pineapples on it and nobody liked it at first. But after that, they went crazy about it!”
In the beginning there was nothing. Well, not quite nothing. The Bible begins this way: “In the beginning God.” That was it. Just God. Nothing more. But let’s be clear. It was the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As the Bible reveals more about God’s nature, we discover this in Colossians 1:16, “For 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.” The previous verse speaks about Jesus being the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. And then we read that He, Jesus, created all things – everything we see in the world around us, and all we cannot see that fills the spiritual realm. So following the logic, it is obvious that Jesus is God. And it was He who spoke everything into being. If He had the power to do that, He certainly has the power to speak into your life all that you need to live victoriously for Him day by day. And to empower you to accomplish all He has for you to do today. Trust Him.
These have been words from the heart.
