I recently started reading the “Essential Jesus“, a Bible reading plan I found at Youversion.com.

One of the first readings is Colossians 1:15-20. I had read this passage many times before, but for some reason, I must have spent more time meditating on it or something, because I haven’t been able to stop thinking about these characteristics of Jesus and how He is supreme over everything.

Jesus is supreme over all. He must be supreme over our lives. We exist for Him. It’s easy to forget that when we have plans and lists of things to do. Often, our culture has taught us that we exist for ourselves. I must remember that I exist for Jesus.
