JESUS IS CREATOR
Jesus is Lord
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.
Jesus is the Power of Creation
"For by him all things were created."
"All things were made by him."
Pantheism Ignores Creation
"The universe has judged you. You asked it for a prize and it told you no."
Secularism Exploits Creation
Paganism Worships Creation
"Unfortunately, if you regard Nature as a mother, you discover that she is a step-mother. The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother, Nature is our sister. We can be proud of her beauty, since we have the same Father, but she has no authority over us; we have to admire, but not to imitate."
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name.
"If I could explain what goes on in a human cell, I would for the rest of my life hire a plane and fly it back and forth across the earth just to proclaim the wonder of how and why a cell works."
Jesus is the Preserver of Creation
"He is before all things, and by him all things hold together."
Jesus is the Purpose of Creation
"Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth, even as it is in heaven."
Let His Creation Thrill You
1 TIMOTHY 6:17
"Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment."
Let His Power Hold You
Let HIs Cross Redeem You
19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcileto himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
