As a member of the Holy Trinity and a blessed part of the Godhead, Jesus Christ is the supreme authority over all of creation—things in heaven above and on the earth below; things we can see with our naked eye, things of microscopic size, and things of the spiritual world that escape our sight. Jesus is supreme over life and death, over every person to ever walk this planet whether they acknowledge Him or not. He is supreme over every believer who has placed their faith in Him and accepted His sacrifice on their behalf. He is our supreme peace-maker—bringing peace between mankind and our Heavenly Father.
Jesus is the supreme hope of the world.
The word “sovereign” means supreme in power and authority.
We can maintain a mindset of peace and hold onto our sense of joy by believing that Jesus is sovereign over everything.
What do you need to trust Jesus with today?
Colossians 1:15-23, “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or 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. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant."
This is a stone in the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem where Jesus was laid and then rose from the grave. Although this stone may or may not have been the exact one the angels rolled away on Resurrections morning, it is symbolic of Jesus' sovereignty over of life and death.
