Paul rightly said, “Christ is all” (Col 3:11). He is all that God is, and all that human hearts need. For the sinner, He is Savior. For the sick, He is the Healer. To the thirsty, He offers living water. To the hungry, He’s living bread. To those in darkness, He’s the Light of the world; and to those in the tomb, He’s the Resurrection and the Life.
Theologians find that “in Him all the fullness of deity dwells in bodily form.” Philosophers discern that “in Him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Scientists discover that “in Him all things hold together.”
He is the poor man’s Treasure and the rich man’s Master. He is the Teacher of disciples and the Playmate of children. For Jews He is Messiah-King. For Gentiles He is Lord of all. At the dawn of creation He was Alpha. And at the end of history He will be Omega. Christ is all. Christ is all.
It is no wonder, then, that Paul described the heart and soul of his ministry by saying, “We proclaim Him” (Col 1:28).
