A Messiah Poem

Rescued, snatched, delivered from the dominion of darkness.
Transformed, translated into the brightness and radiance of Christ’s kingdom.
We experience and enjoy forgiveness of sins!

In Jesus we see the God we cannot see.
We see in Jesus God’s original purpose for all creation; visible and invisible, height and depth, authorities and powers.
He was before anyone or anything came into existence.  He is the source and the sustenance of all that is created.  He holds the cosmos together!

In Jesus we are a new humanity, an eternal community.  By His resurrection He is the prototype of our life for eternity.
The fullness of God is in Him.  Everything of God finds its proper place in Him.
He is the Peacemaker.  All the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies…

All through His shed blood on the cross!

Colossians 1:13-20 (KJV, NIV, ESV, the Message, the Unvarnished Truth)
