Colossians 1:14-18

14 by whom we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven. 1
15 Christ is the visible likeness of the invisible God. He is the first-born Son, superior to all created things. 2
16 For through him God created everything in heaven and on earth, the seen and the unseen things, including spiritual powers, lords, rulers, and authorities. God created the whole universe through him and for him.
17 Christ existed before all things, and in union with him all things have their proper place.
18 He is the head of his body, the church; he is the source of the body's life. He is the first-born Son, who was raised from death, in order that he alone might have the first place in all things. 3
