Staying In Character

"For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities ---- all things were created through Him and for Him. And he is before all things, and in Him all things hold together" (Col.1:16-17).

The actor Dustin Hoffman has played some unique characters in movies like Midnight Cowboy and Rain Man...In order for those roles to be as effective as they were, no matter what happened around his portrayals, he had to stay in character... This brings us to a unique and wonderful characteristic of Jesus. We must absolutely know that Jesus always stays in character. He can do all things that are in accordance with His character and will. As we see from today's verses, Jesus created all things and sustains all things. He did these things while He was on earth and still does them... He is able to do all things that are in agreement with His character as God. For example, He cannot sin because that violates the character of God. But what He does, must be according to the counsel of His own will. He will not do anything that is not for His glory or our good... "For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are --- yet was without sin" (Heb.4:16). The benefits of those who are in Christ are many... Jesus is our divine Helper... He is the one who comes to our aid... He comes after us in our weaknesses and trials, our pain and suffering, and even in our doubts. In simplicity, we must go to Him and seek His mercy and grace at any time. Why can we utterly depend on this? Its because Jesus has been through it all... And more than that, He always stays in character...

Have a great day... Let His light shine through you... Love mark Phil.4:11
