Colossians 1

Have you ever heard someone exclaim about someone else that that person was “their life”? Are how about someone saying something like, “Ball is life”? I know I have heard those expressions before. Now that I have a granddaughter I know the temptation to say something similar because she is precious and worth a lot of my time. I have especially seen many parents look at their baby and say that their baby was their entire life. But is that healthy? Or is that a proper view of things? Colossians 1 quickly answers that question for us when we read…

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things were created through Him and for Him. And 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, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything He might be preeminent.

Colossians 1:15-18

What is very clear here is that Jesus should be our lives. Without Him everything would fall apart. More than that, He created everything to start with. Then to top it off, He rose from the dead to prove that He is preeminent. He is first. It is so important that we understand this. Until Jesus is first in your life you will never get everything else in its proper place. If Jesus isn’t first you might let someone or something run your life and most likely take your life in an unhealthy situation. Let me encourage you today to let Jesus be your life. If you do, you will not be disappointed because as the creator of your life He knows exactly what you need, when you need and what your were created to do. If you let him be your life you can be assured that he will guide you into what is right. If you let him be your life what you will discover is that he will lead you to true life.
