“For by Him [Jesus], all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him, all things consist.”

Verse 16 in today’s passage states that all things were created both by Jesus and for Jesus. The word “for” in this verse is a preposition that speaks of direction. It’s the Greek word for “moving in the direction of.”
The western world has been invaded by Eastern religions. Eastern religions are circular; they believe everything just goes round and round. But it’s not circular. This world is headed in a direction. The Bible is linear. We’re moving—moving to that time when the kingdoms of this world will become “…the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever” (Revelation 11:15).
Friend, it is all headed to Jesus. It is all for Him, for the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the key to the mystery of history. When people ask you, “What is the world coming to?” tell them: “It’s coming to Jesus.”
