Prison Epistles Lesson 19

The Supremacy of Christ: Re-Creation
Colossians 1:18-20

KEY TRUTH: The Lord of all creation is also the Lord of
re-creation, reconciling all things to God by his sacrificial death on the cross.

  1. Jesus Christ is the supreme authority over the church
  2. Jesus Christ is the complete fullness of God
  3. Jesus Christ is the suffering Savior who authored the new creation


  • As the body of Christ, the church should make Christ preeminent in everything it does.
  • As members of the body, each one of us should make Christ preeminent in the way we live our lives.


  • In what ways does our church do a good job of making Christ preeminent? In what ways could we do better?
  • What are some ways that you can make Christ preeminent in your life? What talents has he given you that you can use to serve the body of Christ?
