Jesus is supreme over all creation because he created and upholds all things physical and spiritual. Jesus created all things for himself, meaning that all created things were made to make Jesus preeminent or first. Jesus is also supreme in regards to the Church and the reconciliation of creation. Jesus is first in the church because he was the first born from the dead and is head of the church. Jesus is first in reconciliation because He is God, and He reconciled all things to Himself through His cross.
