The Head of the Church – 2021-9-26
“And He is the head of the body, the church: . . .”
True Children of the True God,
The leading element for believers — the body of Christ — is Christ.
Paul uses the human body to frame Jesus’ operation within the church.
The body consists of the true believers in Jesus — those who have given their lives to Jesus, and CONTINUE to hear and follow His voice live a life that is “in keeping with repentance” (John the Baptist, Luke 3:8). Simply sitting in a church pew does not pass as a Christian.
Members of this body have a place and function determined by Christ since He made us, and the entire body is linked to Christ, our Head.
Ponder: “Christ is above all powers and Earthly authority . . .” and, “In Him we live, and move, and have our being”. (Ephesians 1:18-23 & Acts 17:28)
