For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
Colossians 1:19-20 A cross without a cause is just a casualty in life. Jesus’ death was not a casualty of bold faith but a choice of great love. The love of God brings us the pleasures of God. The One who had created all things (Col 1:16) had come to restore all things. Man had elected the devil; Jesus came to establish a deliverer.
