(15)Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: (16)For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (17)And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (18)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. Colossians 1:15-18 KJV

Preeminence means to be first (in rank or influence). In verse 18d …that in all things he (JESUS) might have the ranking of number one in our very lives, also he (JESUS) should be the greatest influence in our lives. Everything in our lives is dependent upon Christ. He deserves to have the PREEMINENCE, He deserves to be the PREEMINENCE in our lives. Could I ask you a question today does  Jesus Christ have the Preeminence in your life. If not, why? Just a thought…
