Colossians 1:18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

     In the above verse Paul states that, as head of the church, Jesus is to have the preeminence. What does that mean? According to one dictionary: “Superiority above all others; outstanding”. Is this the case in your congregation or does something (or someone) else occupy this position? Do you hear the words spoken by Jesus or the writings of a denominational teacher? Is there a creed or catechism that sets aside clear Bible teaching for the thoughts of men? Has entertainment taken the preeminence over scriptural worship?
     In many ways men have trampled the Lord’s preeminence underfoot. I pray that you will lift Him up every day.  "You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created." Revelation 4:11
