Without Further Ado
I’ve never had the opportunity to introduce anyone famous. Have you? If you had a chance, who would be the one person you’d like to introduce?

Reading: Colossians 1:15-20
He is before all things, and by him all things hold together. ~Colossians 1:17
Have you ever been to a conference where the emcee rises to the podium, broad smile on her face, hands gripping the lectern and states with adoring voice, “It’s my pleasure to introduce to you tonight, one of the most amazing and successful people I know…”
Now, imagine Paul the Apostle, standing at the podium, or on top of his box, hands outstretched, voice rising above the simmering crowd, “It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Jesus, the Christ.”
What if that was to happen today? What if Jesus was waiting in the wings behind you, smile on his face, arms crossed enjoying your nervousness and excitement.
Then, what if Jesus approached the platform and the first words out of his mouth were, “Thank you, to one of my very best friends (fill in your name) for that amazing introduction!”
How would you introduce Jesus?
