THIS WEEK IN WORSHIP: Colossians - Jesus in First Place

What does it mean that Jesus is in first place in our lives? How do we keep Jesus in first place in our lives? How do we evangelize the lost to see Jesus in first place in their lives? How do we defend Jesus in first place against the humanistic philosophies of our age that want to place us in first place? These are just a few of the valuable answers we’ll draw from the Holy Spirit's inspired book of Colossians.
