Paul says six times in the space of five verses in Colossians 1 that all we could possibly want to know about God, his works and his character are found in Jesus. And so ONLY Jesus Christ can make God known to us. He’s not one of many men who reveal God to us, he’s not even one of many gods with a small g. In the words of Bon Jovi he’s the one and only. So, this week we explore why for Paul, and in fact all the New Testament writers, Jesus was in another category to anyone else who has ever claimed to reveal God to us and why only a supreme Christ can help us to overcome the pressures of life, in particular – our competing priorities, our fearsome enemies and our nagging doubts. As we explore each of these pressures in turn, we discover that it’s only with this vision of a supreme Jesus that we can “continue in our faith, established and firm, and not move from the hope held out in the gospel”.
