Jesus Christ is our guiding light, he is our directional bearing, he is our clear direction no matter what life brings.

Seeing Christ Clearly (1.15-20)
Although an honest adult study of the available records is essential, to decide that Jesus really was the embodiment of God in a human being is not a merely intellectual decision. Our unconscious minds will sense (even if the conscious mind does not) that to accept such a unique Fact cannot but affect the whole of our life. We may with complete detachment study and form a judgment upon a religion, but we cannot maintain our detachment if the subject of our inquiry proves to be God Himself. This is, of course, why many otherwise honest intellectual people will construct a neat by-pass around the claim of Jesus to be God.

Your God is Too Small,
J.P. Philips

Jesus as Creator God vv. 15-17

Jesus as Head of the Church vv. 18-20

Seeing Ourselves Clearly (1.21-23)

Our past

Our future

Our present

Life application:
Will you trust God to hold your life together?

We increase your faith when we increase our understanding of the object of our faith ~ Jesus. How can you do that this week?

Jesus reconciles all things. Will you trust him to reconcile you with God?
