Was Jesus a Part of Creation?

“For by Him 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.”

Colossians 1:16

Ponder This

Jesus is the power of creation. The little baby in Matthew 1 is the mighty God of Genesis 1. There was nothing made without Him. I don’t believe in evolution. It’s the next best guess of those who do not know the Word of God.

If evolution is true, you have problems with the Scripture. If the Bible can’t tell me from where I have come, how can it tell me where I am headed? You have trouble with salvation. If there’s no creation, no Adam and Eve, no garden of Eden—then there was no fall into sin. If there’s no fall into sin, there’s no need for a new birth. Man’s just progressing onward and upward. But Jesus said in John 3:3 that we must be born again. If Genesis 3 is a myth, John 3 is a farce. But that’s not what the Bible teaches. The Bible teaches that Jesus is the power of creation. Everything was made by Jesus.

  • Based on today’s devotion, why is it important to believe what the Bible says about Jesus as God the Son and as the power of creation?
  • Have you lived in a way that does not line up with today’s verse, Colossians 1:16?
