Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: The presence of an absence (vital spirituality)
The empowered life of Roots & Wings: a life marked by the pre-eminence of Christ (Colossians 1:15-20)

Our passage today makes it clear that Jesus is Lord of all and is the rightful number one of every one of his followers. Which number one are looking out for?
