Comments Off on Perfect!

I like being reminded of the gift Gad gave us through his son.

He made sure we can be properly prepared to stand before his throne in perfection. Colossians 1 may just be the best and most important reminder of that in the Bible.

Christ was always here – he is the image of God and all things were made through him. (Colossians 1:15-20) He was a perfect example and his perfection lives on in his kingdom (the church).

If the version of the Bible you are using says we are anything except “perfect” (mature, completeness, etc.) in Colossians 1:28, I urge you to make an annotation there that the word means perfect (The NKJV has the proper treatment of this verse). The whole goal of Christianity is to make all men perfect before God (Ephesians 1:4) and it was one of the first things Jesus told us he wanted. (Matthew 5:48)
