He himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together)—Colossians 1:17
Colossians 1:17 is a pretty awesome scripture. It tells us Jesus is holding EVERYTHING together. Wow! Even people who don’t realize this are held together by Him.
Think about it. We can’t have good marriages if Jesus isn’t holding them together. If Jesus isn’t developing our personal relationships, then we aren’t going to have good ones. Our finances would be a mess without Jesus. Our minds and emotions would be a wreck without Him. Everything would be a mess without Jesus.
If Jesus is not the most important thing in our lives, then we need to rearrange our priorities. Matthew 6:33 tells us to seek God and His kingdom first because if we don’t have first things first, then everything else will also be out of order and cause us probems. God’s way of being, doing and seeking His kingdom is to find out how He wants things done—how to treat people, how to act in situations, how to spend money, what kind of attitude to have, and what kind of entertainment is best for us.
Start today by giving Him first place in your life. He’s holding you together..He created you to follow Him. Put Him first in your life.
