In a few short months, we will celebrate the Great Jubilee, the two-thousandth anniversary of Jesus' Incarnation. The most commonly used tabulation of years is dated from Jesus. He "is the Image," the Icon, "of the invisible God" (Col 1:15). He is both "the First-Born of all creatures" (Col 1:15) and "the First-Born of the dead" (Col 1:18). Everything was created in, through, and for Him (Col 1:16). "It is He Who is Head of the body, the Church" (Col 1:18).
Primacy is "His in everything. It pleased God to make absolute fullness reside in Him and, by means of Him, to reconcile everything in His Person" (Col 1:18-20). Jesus is "the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End" (Rv 21:6). Jesus is Lord of lords and King of kings (Rv 19:16). Jesus' name is the only name by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12). He is the only Way to the Father (Jn 14:6) and the One Who baptizes us in the Holy Spirit (Mk 1:8). Jesus is God.
Therefore, love Him "with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind" (Lk 10:27). "Live no longer" for yourself "but for Him" (2 Cor 5:15; Gal 2:20). Be His slave (Col 3:24). Worship Him (Rv 5:13). Trust Jesus.
