Jesus Holds All Things Together

In his gospel, the apostle John introduces Jesus with a callback to creation. John 1:1-4 says: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.”

John makes it clear that the Word he is writing about is Jesus in verse 14: “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.”

Jesus made everything. Just like God and the Holy Spirit, nothing was made without Jesus’s involvement.

The apostle Paul also makes this abundantly clear in Colossians 1:16-17: “For in him (Jesus) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”

Jesus not only created everything, He holds it all together.

The last three weeks we’ve seen how God, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are connected to Creation. The three Persons of the Trinity are seen throughout Scripture, starting with, “In the beginning.”
