Jesus First

The church at Colossae had lost sight of what matters most. As Paul gets to the heart of the letter in v15, he starts by restoring their view of Jesus. Yes, they believed in Jesus but they had an inadequate and incomplete view of Jesus and so they had inadequate and incomplete resources to deal with the challenges, questions and struggles they faced as Christians in every day life. They were saying, "Of course, we start with Jesus... but what else do we need?" Col. 1:15-20 gives us a majestic picture of who Jesus is so that he might be restored and re-restored to the place of supremacy in all our lives and so that we would find in Him everything we for all of life.
