Since some have asked, here is a clip that I used for my talk on Colossians 1:15-17 for Arrowsmith Youth last Friday night.
Think of this, if Jesus created everything and everything is created through him and he sustains all things, Jesus then is in a much better position to know what is best for everyone. That includes knowing what is best for me and knowing what is best for you.
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:15-17 ESV)
