“He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything.”Colossians 1:17-18 NLT
Jesus is the Son of God. Through Him all things were created. He has always been and He was never created. He is the great I AM and we who have placed our faith and trust in Him will spend all eternity with Him.
It is not our works that gain is access to Heaven. It is the precious shed blood of Jesus Christ. There are many who believe they are good people, but in fact all are born into sin and it is only those who place their faith and trust in Jesus who are declared righteous. Any person outside of Jesus Christ is seen as wicked in the eyes of Almighty God.
All of us will stand before Jesus some day. Those who place their faith in Him will be accountable for the gifts they were given and the stewardship of their life. Those who reject Jesus while alive will stand before the white throne judgment and their name will not be found in the Book of Life. Today if you have not given your heart to Jesus or if you have wander from the faith repent this day, turn from your sin, and make Jesus your Lord and Savior.
