World Communion: Jesus is Savior for All

World Communion: Jesus is Savior for All

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation;  for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross. –Colossians 1:15-20

Reflect: Consider your relationship with Christ in the context of Christ’s larger purpose to reconcile all things. What does it mean to be a follower of Christ who is working to reconcile all things?

Reflect & Practice: How is Jesus call to Communion representative of God’s call to bring together all things? Who or what in our world is divided, separated, or fragmented? What can you do this week to bring somethings (maybe some persons) together?

Practice: Practice world communion this week. Every time you eat a meal, pray and reflect upon God’s work to bring all things together through Jesus Christ.
