“He is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Col. 1:18
The person, Jesus Christ, have the preeminence in all things. It is a fact and a reality. He is the conqueror, the King and Lord. Therefore, let Jesus also have the preeminence in your life, your family, the church you belong to and in the service you do. Only Jesus deserves the preeminent place and being at the center. Not you, me or anyone else. Not even the miracles or the teachings of or about Him, but the person, Jesus.
It was Jesus who came here to earth. He served, suffered, died and rose. Jesus is worthy of our praise and appreciation. Everything else pales in comparison to Him. He have the preeminence in everything, may He also have it in my and your life. Then our lives are in accordance with and subordinate to reality itself – Jesus.
God bless you.
