Do We Reverence Christ The Creator?

Bob, listen to Me.  I am the Christ.  Learn of me because I am the image of the invisible God.  When you learn of Me, then you will learn more about God.  I am supreme, and I have rank over creation because I was before all things.  I have existed from everlasting.  I created all things in heaven and earth.  All human and heavenly authorities were made by Me.  I made them all for my purposes.  I am sustaining all things.  Everything in the universe is being held together by Me.  I AM.

I love you.  I died for your sins.  I rose again.  I gave you faith to believe in Me. Therefore, be humble, be thankful, glorify Me with your life, and trust Me!  Everything is for a reason.  Everything is for a purpose.  Everything is for Me.
