We went to bed last night floating on a sea of red that flooded our country. Some of you were smiling and had a sweet sleep while others tossed and turned dreaming about what could have been. Either way, God is still on His throne. A quick glance at the Electorial Map says we are divided. BC is orange, the Prairies and Us are blue, the Maritimes are red and in-between, well, a smattering of multicolorism with red being dominant. Yes, the electorate may be divided but not the Christian, for after this red dust has settled, we must get back to work proclaiming that Christ’s Blood Ran Red bringing Change to all who dare to believe. True change comes to a country not through the political process but through repentance. Jesus Christ is the answer to a world that has lost its moorings with you and I being God’s conduit.
Colossians 1:15-23 (ESV) The Preeminence of Christ
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 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. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 And He is the Head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the Firstborn from the dead, that in everything He might be preeminent. 19 For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. 21 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22 He has now reconciled in His body of flesh by His death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before Him, 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.
