Jesus existed within the plan of God “before” the creation, and the plan of creation existed “in” him, and came into being “through” him, though he did not personally “create” the universe. As a reward for his faithfulness, God planned on giving him full control over creation, so in this way it was created “for” him. -- 1 Corinthians 3:11; 1 Peter 1:19, 20
