He Is

The Supremacy of Christ is the focus of this passage from Colossians

The Supremacy of the Son of God

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 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. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

This isn’t exactly word for word but follows the text fairly closely.  You could definitely learn the passage and meditate on it using this song.

Please let me know what you think in the comments below and as always feel free to post on facebook and share with others.  Excuse the rough recording (especially in the “pitch” department…I’ll be working towards a refined version soon), but hopefully you get the general idea of the song.

The Tree Light Miracle

Megan and I have been talking about helping our kids (and us too) learn to see God’s hand at work all around us.

Just yesterday Megan was setting up the pre-lit Christmas tree (I know blasphemy) when after it had been up and decorated for several hours, the whole middle section of lights went out.  This was very frustrating for Megan.  But she decided this could be a God at work moment.  She interrupted the kids from whatever they were doing and told them they needed to pray that God would help them fix the lights quickly and easily.  Before praying Megan had been fiddling with the fuses and bulbs trying to discover and decipher which light was the culprit, after praying it only took a few moments and the second light she messed with turned all the lights back on.

I know, simple and silly, but to us a big deal. We want to stop being so self-reliant and teach our kids God really does care and is involved with our lives at every level.  So for us- Another Festivus Miracle!

P.S. I’m sure I was being helpful somewhere else (probably outside hanging those lights).
