OUTLINE with QUOTES:

I. The Supremacy of Christ in Eternity

II. The Supremacy of Christ in Creation

  1. Jesus is firstborn

QUOTE: “This distinguishes Christ from all created things as before them in time and as supreme. He outranks all things in creation.” – David Garland

  1. Jesus is Creator

QUOTE: “Christ is Creator of all! We are well aware of what this implies when we think of a universe which is millions of light-years across, but here on our earth it is astounding too. He created even the tiniest creatures. There are 800,000 catalogued insects, with billions in some of the species—all created by Christ.” – The MacArthur Study Bible

  1. Jesus is the goal
  2. Jesus is the Sustainer

QUOTE: “What a stunning revelation this is! It is meant to stretch our puny minds and dominate our thinking and change us. When we truly understand what is being said here, it is amazing that we should ever look anywhere else for meaning and purpose in life. Since he is the Creator who holds all things together, he knows how to best fix and order our lives.” – Hughes

III. The Supremacy of Christ in His Church

What should this mean to us? He must have first-place in everything: our families, marriages, professions, mission, ministry, time, love, conversation, pleasures…the first-place in our worship.
