Read Col 1:9-20 here.
And Colossians says, "Jesus is before all things, and in him all things hold together." Jesus is the glue that keeps everything together.
Let me say that again: JESUS is the glue that keeps everything together; “in him all things hold together.”
This passage has been on my heart, and I think it’s God’s word to you.
It doesn’t say, “in Allison all things hold together.” Or even, “in pastors all things hold together.” That’s too much responsibility for one person. Too much can go wrong when a mere mortal is at the center; that place alone belongs to Jesus.
