Christ the King

Colossians 1:13-23 | |

Who is Jesus to you? Our study of Jesus reveals that he fulfills the three-fold office of the Old Testament: Prophet, Priest and King. At the start of this new year, we listen to Paul’s hymnic testimony to Jesus as supreme King in Colossians 1. This passage is one of the most exalted portraits of Jesus in the scriptures. How would we live our lives this year if Jesus were our King? How would we commit to worship? How would we spend our leisure time? How would we live? We would live better than we ever imagined.
