And For Him

“13For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
15And He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For 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 through Him and for Him. 17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”
Colossians 1:13-17

And for Him. Those who wonder why we are here, what purpose we serve in life, here is your answer.
We were created by God for God. We live by His good Grace, and live to raise up praise and worship to Him, commune with Him. Emmanuel. God with us. Not against us, not to us, but with us. Because of sin in this world, this domain of darkness, many reject Christ. It is not His will that any should perish, but that all should be saved. But only a small percentage are rescued; I can’t tell you why God chose me or anyone else. We who are chosen become brothers and sisters, transferred to the kingdom of His beloved Son.
We don’t and can’t ever deserve such a wonderful gift. But we are grateful, and Praise God for rescuing us.
If you haven’t yet reached the point in your life where you feel that God is calling you, seeking to rescue you from this troubled dominion, I encourage you to seek Him, ask Him for the gift of Salvation.
As you look out on a world without hope, dark and troubled, know that there is Hope only in Jesus Christ.
The world will tell you that Christ is false, that Christians are fools, that there is no hope in Christ.
They were created as part of His Creation, and they reject Christ. They were ‘built to worship God’ but instead they worship themselves or some other lesser god.
Seek God while He may be found. Accept no substitutes. I hope to see you in Heaven.
