    Phyllis, I don 't know what Kelly said but Jesus said exactly that he was God. He was God incarnated in human form with unity of the Holy Spirit. That 's how he was able to nail satan to the cross in form of human flesh. And put all sin to death.
  • Roger Minor for verse 8
    This is a determination of a total sacrifical love with no promotion of human, physical, or moral initiation. The guidance of the guidance of the Spirit is in total control, but that is not the question The question is "How do we allow the Spirit to have total control. Well, know that we must walk in the spirit in order not to fulfil the lust of the flesh these being contrary one to the other, but we have not yet gotten to the essence of the principle. Well here it is "These words I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life. Simply allowing the Word of GOD to get off the pages and do in your life through obedience will fulfil Colossians 1 8 in your life
  • Barney for verse 15
    Elohim the creator in relation to his creatures The God who was the beginning and the son Of God
  • Deidra Chavez for verse 12
    Today FATHER! May the peace I now know that supersedes ALL understanding be given to those whom I Call FAMILY.
  • Steve
    This chapter, like others, describes the Father as God the eternal architect with the plan and Christ as God the eternal builder with the power to enact the plans. The Holy Spirit is in the white spaces.
  • Abiodun for verse 15
    According to Colossians 1 15 Jesus is the exact representation of the father God .To me d image of God here talks about the nature and attributes of God. And no one has ever shown love and demonstrates power like Jesus did.
  • Rev. Autrey
    Colossians 1 16 17 "Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth, the things we can see and the things we can 't the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers and authorities all were made by Christ for his own glory. He was before all else began and it is his power that holds everything together. " Those who say that Christ is not God have bought into the JW heresy. This belief system has been around since the mid 300 's, started by Dr. Arius of Egypt. Arius said that God is different from Jesus. He also said that Jesus is a lesser creature than God, and not of the same substance as God. It was Satan 's attempt to make us believe that God had not fulfilled his promise to come and save us. But sadly, many Christians still believe this lie. We believe it to our own dismay, though. Here is the simple solution to this mystery. God and Jesus are the same. That is, when God sppeared on earth, he said, "I am Jesus. " The Father is God 's other personality, the way God directs his affairs, but Jesus is the way God speaks to us, and the way God made all things. Think about this, and it will all make sense. The bottom line is, we can 't have two Gods. This is not Christian thought. It comes straight out of the mind of Satan. May God bless you!
  • Phyllis wheeler for verse 15
    I total agree with Kelly, people need to stop adding on to the word of God, Jesus never said he was God, He said he was the son of man, God was his father, and he also said he was a prophet.

  • Blessed for verse 16
    This scripture is radical. All things were made by GOD for GOD. Everything from the physical to the spiritual. Religions, humans, nature, storms,modern inventions, all create by GOD for GOD. Genesis says he create the universe out of void. He created man from dirt. Man was created to take care of GOD 'S creations. To worship and praise GOD. NOW we have the gospel of CHRIST, WE ARE supposed to spread the good news of the gospel. JESUS says his yoke is easy and his burden is light. We are the creation of GOD created for GOD. GOD is love! We are created for love by love. Not the love of the world but the love of GOD. I say to you LOVE AND BE LOVED.
  • Keith for verse 11
    Christ gives us the power that sustains us to stay in God 's will and please God because being anxious is the opposite of patience,grumbling is a sign of lack of longsuffering spirit and thus there is no joy hence i love Christ for His power that causes us to be joyfull in all suffering and waiting patiently through all things.

    Colossians really spoke to me this morning It gave me hope for what I m striving for which is perfection That s the goal for me To continue to grow in his word and become like him which is a perfect saint
  • Samson A. Allu for verse 15
    The book of Colossians 1 15 have just review exactly what Jesus christ is the word first born means the first spirit translated that JESUS is GOD because christains or non christains religeous or non religeous we all witness that it s God first and he is invisible God then why the first invisible God declare to you that JESUS is me and you no still believe
  • Gwendolyn for verse 15
    to me it means that he is perfect not good but perfect in every way the word good means superior to something else when compared to other things but the word perfect means unlike unblemished without flaw complete in the Fullness of Jehovah God incorruptible that is why in Colossians 1 19 it states that it pleased Jehovah to have all His fullness dwell in Him Christ not made by hands or conceived by a human but by almighty God Luke1 35 The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the Shadow of the Highest will overshadow you therefore also that Holy Spirit will be called the Son of God not sure but if Jehovah is incorruptable that which of Him must also be incorruptable pure logic if you asked me
  • Lucille Martin for verse 26
    The mystery or secret of JESUS CHRIST was in THE FATHERS plan from the beginning of time. JESUS was made known to at his birth. JESUS is the resurrection of the death in the garden.
  • Anonymous for verse 20
    The ransom, a provision of God's undeserved kindness, can clear our conscience of guilt and give us inner peace

  • B.Doraswamy Reddy
    A great and blissful hope of joining our LORD and Saviour in HIS kingdom through HIS great love of REDEMPTION of those who asked for redemption by cleansing sins in HIS precious blood and preparing us to face boldly the powers of darkness.
  • Doris Young
    Listening to Joyce Meyer this morning brought me to read this chapter, I was have problems with being steadfast in the gospel. After reading Colossians 1, I don't have to wounder about what peoples think, it reminded me to keep my mind on Jesus Christ, know that if I do so, I have the hope of Glory. Amen!!!....
  • John Apid for verse 27
    Christ in us, the hope of glory;

    Glory - manifestation of the attribute/nature of God.

    Therefore, "Christ in me, the hope of glory" is also to say that, "Christ in me, the hope of manifesting the attribute/nature of God".
    It can be also, "Christ in me, the hope of manifesting God".

    If Christ is in you, there is hope for the manifestation of God through you. Amen
  • One
    Versus 9 is the versus that stands out to me: (For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;) Which reminds me that my prayers should be about: God filling us with the desire to be filled with the knowledge of his will, with the correct interpretation of it....... Definitely extremely important in this walk with God, that we don't become ministers of false doctrine, and that we don't be ignorant ourselves; that we spent the rest of our days pleasing God, or at least have more opportunity to.
  • Alvaro rodriguez for verse 24
    This may refer to the Jewish apocalyptic concept of a quota of "messianic woes" that are to be endured before the end of times (see Matthew 23:29-32)
  • Doslin Green
    Colossion1to the end thi s chapture is the perfect tool to rightousness .please Father God kindly create in me a new heart and a new spirit so I may know and love you more.Glory to God I love you Lord Jesus.
  • Saints and faithful brethren.

    As a Christian how faithful am I? To The Lord ? To my family ? To my church? Oh God fill me with your Spirit to be a faithful man.
  • Jesus is the Son of Jehovah the Most High God, only true God, the almighty God, the Sovereign Lord.
  • Darnell Barber
    Colossians chapter one is a fortress fortifying itself in the power of the Holy Ghost within revelation, which builds and rebuilds souls for the war to come.
  • Samuel for verse 12
    This bible verses which i have known in a long time now have been one of my favourites.It empowers to know that we have been "...delivered from the domains of the powers of darkness and bein transferred into the kingdom of his dear son in whom we have redemption.through his blood,even the forgiveness of our sins"what a complete work of REDEMPTION!!! Glory to JEHOVAH. HALLELUYAH!!!
  • Kevin
    I find that Col.Chapt.1 vs. 16 sums up who I am in Christ Jesus. This verse keeps me in place as to my relationship with Him, knowing that I was created by Him for Him is nothing short of breathtaking.
