Colossians 1:15-23.
Jesus Christ is our all in all; both in Heaven and on Earth from creation into eternity. He is the image of God Almighty and reconciles all things together (V 20) including all of us who were ‘alienated and hostile to God’s ways doing all sorts of evil deeds’.

What lesson or lessons do you derive from this reading? Is there anything you need to put into practice in your personal life? Do you realise the work of Christ bringing people back to God?
Lord God, in the name of Jesus Christ, always guide and control my actions. Amen.
