Before the Lord – Day 4

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

Christ does not want to be number one on a list of many. Christ wants to be the center of attention in every number on my list. He is not first, to which I give attention and hastily move on to second, third and fourth. He must be the center matter of every issue of my life. I must learn to give Him preeminence in my private life. He must retain preeminence in my personal relationships. He must be preeminent in my public dealings.  As I yield to the preeminence of Christ, He takes the role of centric force that holds everything else in its proper place.

My prayer today:

My Gracious Savior, empower me to dethrone anything or being in my life that sits in the center seat of preeminence. May I properly relinquish every area of my life to thee. So, I may behold you in your glory from every aspect of my life.
