David Jeremiah 26 May 2023 Devotional
Read David Jeremiah 26 May 2023 Turning Point Devotional Message for Friday
And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. – Colossians 1:18
Recommended Reading: Colossians 3:1-4, 12-17
We occasionally hear of someone being referred to as an “eminent” person in a given field or profession—perhaps scholarship, law, art, or clergy. But very rarely do we hear of someone referred to as the “preeminent” leader in his or her field of endeavor. Preeminent means “the most eminent; above all others.”
Identifying the preeminent person in a worldly venue is perhaps a matter of opinion. But identifying Jesus Christ as having “the preeminence” in “all things”—that is a claim that is beyond challenge (Colossians 1:18). And it’s not up to man to agree or disagree. Christ’s preeminence is God’s own inspired estimation of His Son, “the firstborn from the dead.” It is often the case that what is preeminent in someone’s life will be revealed in time through their actions and conversation. If Christ is preeminent in all things and He lives in us, should He not be the inspiration for our words and our works?
Monitor your words and works today. Are there times when anything takes precedence over Christ in your life? Let His preeminence in you be obvious to others.
To be much like Christ, be much with Christ.
