"If every blade of grass, fish of the sea, and star in the sky exist for the glory of Jesus Christ, what do you think your life is for?"

December 6th, 2020

In the midst of his letter to the Colossians Paul breaks into song, singing the praises of the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all things. Jesus is supreme over all things because of His Identity, His Authority, and His Glory. He is the exact imprint and image of the invisible God, is the Creator of the Universe, and all things exist for His glory.

Application Questions:

  1. What does it mean for Jesus to be "preeminent" over all things?
  2. Why is it important that Jesus is the "image of the invisible God"?
  3. What does "firstborn" mean and why does it matter?
  4. How does Jesus's authority as Creator impact who is in charge of your life?
  5. If the fundamental purpose of all creation is to bring honor and glory to Jesus, what are you living your life for, and what needs to change to live your life for Jesus?
