A hymn to the supremacy of Christ (chapter 1)

Paul said that Christ is the image of the invisible God.  He is the firstborn of all creation.  Everything was created in and for Christ, no matter whether it was visible or invisible.  Everything centers on Christ through him and for him.  Christ holds all things together, because he is the head of the body, the church community.  Christ has the first place in everything.  He was at the beginning and he is the first to rise from the dead.  The fullness of God dwells in Jesus Christ.  Thus, God has reconciled all things, whether on heaven or earth, through the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross.
