Names of Jesus: First Born of Every Creature

This is the scene outside my desk window this morning from Atlanta Georgia in December, and I cannot help but think of the majesty and beauty of God’s creation!  How appropriately named is our Savior, the Firstborn over all Creation (Colossians 1:15).  How can we not stop in awe?

The world seems quieter when it snows.  Some of this may be because of less traffic and people out shopping, but there is a scientific reason as well.  When snow accumulates on the ground and trees, it acts like a sound absorber and dampens the sound waves.  I also believe God created it that way.

The firstborn of all creation refers to Jesus’ deity: his preeminence and highest ranking over all creation.  He existed before creation and is exalted above all creation.

This Christmas season, may we worship the Creator who created all that we see, and saw that it was good.
