“Whataburger” really good! … Jesus Christ? Supremely good!!!

WhataburgerHere in Texas we have a wonderful burger chain that goes by the name “Whataburger” (and here’s one person that believes it is what its name implies – one fine burger!)  Their burger with “God’s favorite vegetable,” the jalapeño pepper is one of the best – superlative, in my opinion!

Burgers are fine, but nothing compared to the character and quality of the God I serve!  Without demeaning Him, I’d probably refer to Him as “WhataGod!”  He’s supreme over everything!  Here’s what the passage I read this morning declares about the Lord Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior…

“He 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!  And He is before all things, and in him all things hold together!  And He is the head of the body, the Church.  He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, THAT IN EVERYTHING HE MIGHT BE PREEMINENT!  FOR IN HIM ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD WAS PLEASED TO DWELL, and through Him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.  And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, He has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before Him.”  (From Colossians 1:15–23 ESV)

“WhataGod” … reminds me a great old gospel  song…

“Christ has for sin atonement made
What a wonderful Savior!
We are redeemed, the price is paid
What a wonderful Savior!

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Jesus!
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord!”

Elisha A. Hoffman, 1891
