Colossians 1 15:20
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
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.
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 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.”

This beautiful video was played in church last weekend while a beautiful girl from the youth group accompanied by song. It brought tears to my eyes. I could clearly imagine the anxiety Mary must have felt. The futility Joseph must have felt wanting to comfort and provide for Mary.
Our savior was born of a virgin and became man so that he could rescue all of us. He became man so that he could die. He died for our sins, and in doing so broke the grip that death and hell had on us.
I have no words to thank you for what you’ve done for us. We truly have no right to ask for anything more from you. Sending your only son to us; certainly more than we deserve.
