“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 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 and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.” Colossians 1:15-18
Jesus Christ is the visible representation of the invisible Most Holy God eternal. Jesus is eternal too. He has always existed; with no beginning or end, He is Supreme! God created the entire universe-all matter, substance, and form, all time, thought, and essence, all by and through Christ. Christ is supreme. Consider that Christ made all things and enables us to trust and have faith in Him. He made literally everything in and within the universe, beyond dimensions and time-Including what we see and do not see. False teachers in Colosse taught that other things were as significant as Christ. Paul corrected this deceptive doctrine, reminding the Colossians that Jesus is supreme in every way. Any teaching that questions Christ’s supremacy is a sham. Jesus wants and deserves supremacy in everything. Have you given it to him? To make Christ supreme in your life means to give him the first place and his rightful authority in your thoughts, your actions, your work, your motives, your plans. Does he come before all things in your life? He’s the one holding your life together.
