In Colossians 1:18, Paul proclaims three ways in which Jesus is FIRST…. “He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that in all things he might have the first place. He is the First Cause, First Born and First Place. Jesus is First Cause…. “Jesus is the First Cause, your Creator. Why is this so? because “By Him all things were created in the heavens and the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions, rulers or authorities, all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things and in him all things hold together”.

Jesus is “the firstborn from the dead” Paul calls Jesus “the firstborn of all creation (Colossians 1:15). This means Jesus is the first to be raised from the dead never to die again.  Nobody else has ever yet done that. One day, all who believe and obey him will follow in his steps. Jesus has First Place…. ”the first place in everything…” He is your Lord and God. Why does he have first place in everything? Because He is the First Cause and First Born has first place in everything.


Let us Worship Jesus and give him first place in our hearts, our education, our marriage, our friendship, our daily living etc. Remember he is the first cause of all creation, who showed his power over creation by becoming the firstborn from the dead.
