The Supremacy of Christ

Colossians 1:17-18, “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”
The Lord Jesus Christ is preeminent. In all the New Testament, that powerful word is only used here. It means “far surpassing all others; to be first – not in order but in rank.”  Jesus is superior to and towers above all others! The Lord Jesus is preeminent in every conceivable category of comparison. His superiority has no restrictions. Jesus is greater than humanity. Jesus is superior over principalities and powers; indeed, over all created things. His dominance is not restricted to time or space. Jesus is preeminent in all times, everywhere, over what’s seen and what’s unseen. It’s always the right time to trust Jesus.
