Colossians 1 points me to what I have to be thankful for in Christ. Colossians 1:9-14 is a prayer that has been prayed over me, my own children, and the awesome kids that I’ve had the privilege to invest in during my years in student ministry and at @NCCSEagles.
The next part of this passage points me to the preeminence of Christ. That’s a fancy word that simply asks the question…What/Who has first place in your life? Everyone worships something/someone in their life. In fact, our worship can easily be thought of as “worth-ship”…what do we ascribe worth to in our lives? That’s a great question to ask the people closest to you. What do you see as the object of my worship?
