Quotes to Consider:
William Hendrikson on Colossians 1:20:
"Harmony, accordingly, has been restored. Peace was made. Through
Christ and his cross the universe is brought back or restored to its
proper relationship to God in the sense that as a just reward for his
obedience Christ was exalted to the Father’s right hand, from which
position of authority and power He rules the entire universe in the
interest of the church and to the glory of God."
Herman Bavinck: "Scripture knows no independent
creatures ... God cares for all his creatures: for animals (Gen 1:30;
6:19; 7:2; 9:10; Job 38:41; Ps. 36:7; 104:27; 147:9; Joel 1:20; Matt.
6:26, etc.), and particularly for humans. He sees them all (Job 34:21;
Ps. 33:13, 14; Prov. 15:3); fashions the hearts of them all and
observes all their deeds (Ps. 33:15; Prov. 5:21); they are all the
works of his hands (Job 34:19), the rich as well as the poor (Prov.
22:2). He determines the boundaries of their habitation (Deut. 32:8;
Acts 17:26), inclines the hearts of all (Prov. 21:1), directs the
steps of all (Prov. 3:21; 16:9; 19:21; Jer. 10:23, etc.), and deals
according to his will with the host of heaven and the inhabitants of
the earth (Dan. 4:35). They are in his hands as clay in the hands of a
potter, and as a saw in the hand of one who pulls it (Isa. 29:16;
45:9; Jer. 18:5; Rom. 9:21)" (In the Beginning, p. 230).
