Exalt Jesus as Lord, preeminent in your life (Col 1:15-20). #PreeminentLeader #BeginningAndEnd #AuthorAndFinisher https://www.bible.com/116/col.1.15-20.nlt
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
When Paul declares that Jesus was/is the supreme, preeminent one in life and in the universe (v15) he meant clearly that Jesus was the head, the first. He existed ahead of the beginning (v15). So everything begins with Jesus (v18), and it ends with Jesus – he is the author and finisher of our faith.
God himself became the God-man. “He was pleased in all his glory to live as a human in Christ Jesus” (v19). By this glorious manifestation he was able to reconcile men, make them right with him. What God chooses to do that? None. Only Jehovah God. My God. Lord, I exalt you as my Supreme and preeminent Leader in life. I owe all to my redeemer God.

He is the image of the Invisible God, The First Born of creation, He is the First, the Last, the One who matters most. He is Creator, Ruling Sustainer of all, He holds it all together. He is the Word of God, the Hope for all the world. His Name is lifted higher. Jesus, Your Name is lifted higher.
We bless You Lord, God of the Ages! Highest of all we magnify You! Your Name be exalted! Exalted!

So Wonderful, so Beautiful, so kind and lovely. Jesus is a treasure rich and rare, He is Marvelous and Holy. He is a Giver of a grace that none could earn. This Jesus, He is extravagant, He is a Keeper of His promise and His Word, such goodness and faithfulness.
