High above the pond this morning twenty geese formed a perfect "V" as they flew to their summer home. I don't think they had a preflight planning conference to discuss this formation and I don't think they carry GPS but I'm confident they will reach the right destination. Certainly their perfect flight formation inspires confidence that they are following a well conceived design. Our Heavenly Father also conceived a perfect design in sending His Son to rescue us. The book of Colossians uses the phrase "through him" to tell us about this "perfect formation". Here are some "through him's":
Colossians 1:16 "for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can't see..."
"Everything was created through him and for him"
Colossians 1:19-20 "For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself.
So this includes you!
Colossians 1:22 "Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault."
I hope you have found this perfect "V" formation of victory in and "through" the Son of God. He soars over your pond today and awaits you to join his flight pattern.
