A group of us attended a Men’s Conference this past Saturday. We were encouraged to pursue a Christ-centeredness in our lives.
One of the points that I have been chewing on these past few days relates to Colossians 1:18b which, speaking of the Lord Jesus Christ, says “so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything”. We were reminded that we often think in terms of Christ having first place “above” everything. In actuality, rather than “above” the verse says “in”; that is, that Christ would have first place in each area of our lives whether that be family, work, marriage, school, singleness, church, and whatever other area you can list. Christ must be our all in all!
