Colossians 1:16-17
For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Jesus holds our lives together
In the past, the stones that were used to build buildings were not plastered together with cement but every piece of stone fitted just right. That makes us wonder what keeps the buildings up, like the arch in the picture. All the stones have to be precision cut to fit nicely into the structure and the centre stone is placed in position last. It is the keystone that keeps the arch from falling.
Jesus is like the keystone in our lives. He keeps our lives from falling apart. When there are a lot of things going on, it may seem like Jesus is just peripheral to other more pressing things. However, remember that Jesus is the one who holds our lives together. The world is not our focus because it is simply peripheral to Jesus. In everything we must always include Jesus because when He is the focus in your life, everything holds together and stacks right into place. When the disciples were in a boat that was beaten by storm, Jesus was there to speak Shalom into the situation. So when your life seems to be falling apart, Jesus will be there to hold you in His loving arms of GRACE.
