We are in the thick of the college football season. Week 3 is upon us. One of the most fun elements of the season is the college football rankings. Everyone wants to know who’s number one.
But there is a perennial power that is always number one! And, no, I’m not talking about Alabama. I’m not even talking about football per se. I’m talking about the one who reigns above principality and power. No need to wait with baited breath to see the weekly rankings. He never slips from the top spot. He is the Lord Jesus! Of His kingdom there shall be no end!
Colossians clearly presents the truth that Jesus reigns above all. This Sunday we will continue unpacking this truth and how it should impact every arena of our lives. Join us at Istrouma!

The world has seen its share of great empires and rulers.
But there is an empire that is eternal and a King who is supreme and without peer or rival.
At His birth the angel declared, “. . . you shall call his name Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. . . . and of his kingdom there will be no end” (Luke 1:31b-33).
Perhaps no book of the Bible better presents this King and His Kingdom to us than does Colossians. We will make this brief book our home for the next 10 weeks or so. We will proclaim loudly and clearly that “Jesus Reigns.”
His reign is beneficent. Let’s bow our knees and wills before Him for His glory and our own good.
