We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels–everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body. Colossians 1:15-18 (MSG)
We look at this Son and see all we need to see. He puts everything and everyone in its place, and holds it all together.
In today’s reading Paul is telling truth after truth, point after point, about Jesus
Christ has no equal and no rival!
This Christ we serve…..
He is Lord of ALL.
All means all and that’s it.
Here the matter of the worshiping of created things instead of the Creator is dealt with as people were listening to false teaching of worshipping angels.
At one time or another haven’t we all gotten caught up and before we know it, we place more value on “stuff” than we do Him? Or what about placing more value on people than we do Him?
That includes you, single woman, placing a desire (and obsession) for a man in your life over the desire for THE Man that’s already there.
Let’s turn this thing around (otherwise known as repenting 1John1:9)
The Greek word Prototokos is used in these verses, one meaning of this word is the preeminent authority over the resurrection of the dead. All who trust Christ will also defeat death and rise again to live eternally with Him (Jesus jigging!! Whew glory!!)!
Christ deserves first place in our hearts, all our thoughts, all our activities, the entire church. First place is His.
Lord, thank You for all You do….seen and unseen to care for me. Thank You that you reign supreme because that means all things are in the right hands. May I always keep first things first….and that’s You….upfront and in charge. In Jesus name, amen
I love you deeply. Walk in worship of the true King.
