Jesus Is First In Everything! (2/10/2019)

Colossians 1:15-20, Brian Doten:   

Most likely, Colossians 1:15-20 is an early Christian hymn.  Like a lot of sacred music sung by God’s people over the years, the song was intended to teach truth about God to people who sang it.  It was a “musical sermon.”  What does this early hymn teach?  Amazing, life changing truth about Jesus, specifically that Jesus is LORD over everything – the universe, all of creation, the church, our lives, our relationships, our families, our jobs, our futures – everything.  Jesus is LORD of everything!  Has that truth found a home in you?  Today we reflect on the greatness and supremacy of Christ, on the fact that he is LORD over everything, and what that means for us.
