    Creation and Redemption

    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.... All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.” 3John 1:1-14.EVCO 22.3

    “In Him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things have been created through Him, and unto Him; and He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” 4Colossians 1:16, 17, R.V.EVCO 22.4

    Let us give particular attention to the last text, and see how creation and redemption meet in Christ. In the verses just before it we read that God “hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son, in whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” And then, after a parenthetical remark as to who Christ is, the apostle tells us how it is we have redemption through His blood. This is the explanation: “For in Him were all things created,” etc.EVCO 23.1
