Colossians 1:17-19 The Passion Translation (TPT)

17 He existed before anything was made, and now everything finds completion in him.

18 He is the Head of his body, which is the church. And since he is the beginning and the firstborn heir in resurrection,[a] he is the most exalted One, holding first place[b] in everything. 19 For God is satisfied to have all his fullness[c] dwelling in Christ.
