Consider what Kristen Birkett has to say in light of Colossians 1:15-16: [Jesus Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things were created through Him and for Him.
We will never understand what it is to be human and will never be fully human until we take seriously our purpose in being created for Christ. . . . Knowing what we were made for is the only thing that can give meaning to all our other knowledge. It is the only thing that can actually turn knowledge into wisdom.
