Jesus - The CEO


"And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way" (Eph.1:22-23).

For any corporation to be successful, everyone from top to bottom must function and do their parts. Generally, the people at the top supply the ideas and instructions, and the employees carry them out. When the apostle Paul used the metaphor as Christ as the head of His church, leadership was the subject. For a community of people to pursue purposeful goals and do worthwhile things, good leadership is crucial... Just as the head of one's body is the nerve center from which the body functions as a unit, Christ is the head of the church. His leadership gives unity to Christians, and it has spread over time and space. Christ is the authority from which the doctrine, worship, hope, and behavior of the church flow... Because Jesus is not physically present today, we come to rely on the inspired words found in the Bible, and it is here that He exercises His headship... The church knows how He is to be praised and the type of lives they are to live because He has spoken through His Word. Having leadership implies authority, but that isn't all. More about Jesus being the CEO next time...

Have a great day... Go about doing good... Love mark Phil.4:11
