This is Steve and welcome back to another segment of Press On. 

This is called Hold It Together.


I’d like to ask you a question…What holds you together? No really what holds your life together? 


Seems like a simple question but is it?


Almost everyday I come across stories of individuals and families that are struggling...the word chaos comes to mind. Look around and listen...it’s not hard to find. In fact try and stomach 5 minutes of the national news…it’s disheartening. I would wager you know exactly what I’m talking about…perhaps your life, family, world feels like chaos. Listen to what the writer of Colossians 1 says:


Colossians 1:15-17

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation: for by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or rulers, or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.



 Now consider what Paul says in verse 17 “He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”

Christ is not only the agent of the beginning of creation and the end of it but He is the force in between that holds everything together. 

William Barclay writes this: “That is say, all laws which govern and sustain order and not chaos in the universe are an expression of the mind of the Son....the laws by which the universe hangs together are not only scientific laws but also divine.

Simply put, life apart from Christ is chaos...with Christ there is order and thus purpose. 

Theres much more to this story but for today think about this: 


It’s easy to look around and see chaos, as the world pushes God out of society chaos abounds but remember, order begins when Christ is in our hearts. When things seem to be falling apart, ask the Lord to reestablish order because “in him all things hold together.”


This is Steve and until we meet again Press On


and to Matt H thanks for listening?
